Two NEW Regional-Associate Members State Regional & Federal Enterprise Retrieval System (SRFERS) Capital Wireless Information Net (CapWIN) 20
LOGIC Nlets received a GIS grant from the National Institute of Justice to test the feasibility of providing geospatial information capabilities to law enforcement and public safety. LIVE Operational Geospatial Information Capability 22
LOGIC PILOT STATES 23
LOGIC SUMMARY 24 The LOGIC project will create the Nlets infrastructure to deliver GIS capabilities using XML and government approved standards for the exchange of geospatial information.
LOGIC SUMMARY ( CONTINUED ) Potential GIS capabilities include: Location-based alert notification, including electronic image transfer APBs AMBER Alerts BOLOs Homeland Security Alert notices Weather alerts 25
LOGIC SUMMARY ( CONTINUED ) 26 GIS tool capability for use in mobile and handheld computers Geo-coding capability enabling law enforcement access and use of external data sets Large-structure 3-D geo-coding and tools for capturing, marking and identifying details and key data
LOGIC OBJECTIVES ( CONTINUED ) 27 Specific outcomes will include: GIS tool compatibility for use in mobile and handheld operating environments Multiple source and multiple format spatial data visualization from local, state and federal RMS databases and GIS platforms
LOGIC BENEFITS 28 Provide rich location-based information services. Incorporate geospatial capabilities into technical specifications to be conveyed to member states for broad adoption Developed/tested standards-based image exchange capabilities supporting authorized notifications and alerts. Improve collaboration, informed decision making and effective cross-boundary incident response.
LOGIC INTERFACE 29 The LOGIC portal enables greater specificity in alerts and messaging by allowing the user to visually “lasso” ORIs on the map and filter by type to ensure the message is only delivered to relevant entities.

CHIEF Nlets received a grant from the Bureau of Justice Statistics to standardize the exchange of Rap Sheets among states using eXtensible Markup Language (XML). Criminal History Information Exchange Format 32
CHIEF STATES 33 Texas Florida Tennessee Maine Iowa Wisconsin Oregon Massachusetts New York Pennsylvania Kentucky North Carolina
CHIEF SUMMARY 1. Migrated the Interstate Criminal History Transmission Specification Version 3.01 (Rap Sheet) to a Version 4.0 conformant with the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) 34
CHIEF SUMMARY 2. Developed and installed XML transformation services on the Nlets network 3. Created an environment to support statistical analysis of criminal record check transactions 35
CHIEF ACHIEVEMENTS 36 Migrated the JTF Rap Sheet XML specification (3.01) to a NIEM 2.0 conformant JTF 4.0 specification Upgraded the Nlets XMR to provide NIEM functionality Created implementation plans for each participating state
CHIEF ACHIEVEMENTS ( CONTINUED ) 37 Deployed to the participating states the capability to send and receive XML Rap Sheets Supported BJS statistical analysis on Rap Sheet exchange in the pilot states and began to develop the capability to support recidivism studies derived from Rap Sheet data Supported the JTF effort to develop a 4.1 Rap Sheet Specification to include additional requirements identified by the states
NISP Nlets received a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security to demonstrate the viability of exchanging interstate driver license (DL) photos. Partners with SRFERS and AAMVA. Nlets Interstate Sharing of Photos 38
