Justice data-sharing network to get COO

The Regional Information Sharing System Network for exchanging information among law enforcement agencies will have a chief operating officer within weeks.

M. Miles Matthews will leave his position as senior management counsel and executive officer of the Justice Department's Counterdrug Intelligence Executive Secretariat to take the newly created job of managing riss.net.

In his role as the network's COO, Matthews will 'speak for and commit on behalf of riss.net,' he said. Matthews also will continue his involvement in Justice programs such as the Global Intelligence Working Group and the Law Enforcement Information Sharing Strategy planning group, he said.

Matthews will report to the members of the RISS Director's Association, the six executives in charge of the law enforcement support centers that receive their funding from the Office of Justice Programs.

Matthews' team at Justice recently received an award from GCN for its data-sharing efforts [See GCN story].
