ISRI’s STA will now be able to reach more than 117,000 law enforcement officers in almost 9,000 agencies that are members of RISS. This new partnership with RISS further strengthens the relationship between recyclers and law enforcement and provide needed resources to combat materials theft. RISS is congressionally funded and is administered by the U.S. Department of Justice. The connection to RISS was done without any additional cost to ISRI.
On April 24, RISS broadcast a Technical Announcement to each of its six regional centers which encompass the entire U.S. This Announcement made users aware of the availability of STA through the RISS network.
