RISCmobile pulls results from the FBI's RISC database and the TXDPS Criminal History database. TXDPS may send the rap sheet AND a photo if available. The FBI's RISC does not return a photo at this time.
Enhance hometown security
During a traffic stop due to a broken tail light, a state trooper is handed a driver’s license with a photo that doesn’t resemble the driver. The trooper produces the RISCmobile tool, collects a fingerprint sample from the suspicious driver and submits the print to compare against the TXDPS database and also the FBI’s Repository for Individuals of Special Concern (RISC) database. Within a minute, a highly probable positive match is returned with an active arrest warrant in Nevada for a triple homicide. With this new clarity, the trooper calls for backup to take the driver into custody.
Ever expanding RISC database
RISC was launched in 2011 by the FBI. RISC is a subset of the criminal fingerprint records in the FBI AFIS database. The goal of the list is to create an optimized, quickly searchable list of the nation's most dangerous and concerning criminals for in-the-field agents using Mobile ID systems.
Current RISC responses include the Red/Yellow/ Green flag, the category of hit, the Master Name, the FBI Number, and limited NCIC information with the ability to request rap sheets. TXDPS may send the rap sheet AND a photo if available. The FBI's RISC does not return a photo at this time.
RISC supports rapid mobile identification searches using a minimum of two or maximum of ten fingerprint images (flat or rolled) against the population in RISC.
