A Call to Action: Enhancing Officer Safety Through the Use of Event Deconfliction Systems

Event deconfliction is the process of determining when law enforcement personnel are conducting an event in close proximity to one another at the same time. Events include law enforcement actions such as raids, undercover operations, surveillance, or executing search warrants. When certain elements (e.g., time, date, or location) are matched between two or more events, a conflict results. Immediate notification is then made to the affected agencies or personnel regarding the identified conflict. To implement systematic event deconfliction within agency operations, agencies should utilize one of three nationally recognized event deconfliction systems: Case Explorer, the Regional Information Sharing Systems® (RISS) Officer Safety Event Deconfliction System (RISSafe™), or the Secure Automated Fast Event Tracking Network (SAFETNet). These systems are designed to identify and provide immediate notification to personnel of potential conflicts with other law enforcement actions or events, including executing a search warrant, serving an arrest warrant, or a dignitary visit.
