NLETS Implementation of XML and Web Services
As a follow on to the information shared last year, this presentation will bring the audience up-to-date with efforts involving NLETS in
the development, implementation and use of these new Internet technologies. Extensible Markup Language and Web Services are two
of the most common technical components in the implementation of Internet technologies. NLETS has committed itself to using these
tools to vastly improve justice related information sharing. This session will take a look at these new technologies at a high level and
break down what they are, and how they work. This will not be a detailed technical discussion. For those of you looking for more
detail, these speakers can entertain you for hours in side-bar discussions.
This session is for the newer NLETS representative, or conference attendee who would like to learn more about NLETS. This session
will review the administrative makeup of NLETS, our history and growth through the years. We will also review, at a high level, the
technical infrastructure that NLETS has in place to meet the growing demands of the justice community.
The session will include a review of the newest NLETS video and have a question and answer session.
Integrated Justice – Information Sharing – Prevention and Detection in the post 911 World
Integrated Justice and Information Sharing are the "hot topics" within the criminal justice, law enforcement, public safety and even many
non traditional communities today. The events of 9/11 has resulted in increased emphasis on information sharing specifically for the
prevention and detection of Terrorism while systems for the express purpose of attaining efficiency have been less at the forefront. This
session will review the guiding principles of integration and information sharing and where the two can compliment each other. Tools
and terminology to accomplish this will be discussed.
In addition some insight into national information sharing initiatives and possible future networks/communications to facilitate
interoperability and support of first responders will be presented.
NCMEC Presentation – Child Victim Identification Project (CVIP) and Identifying Victims in Online Child Pornography
NCMEC’s ECU has become the leading resource on the identification of children depicted in child pornography images. The mission of
the Child Victim Identification Project (CVIP) is two-fold:
1 - Identify unknown child victims featured in child pornography images
2 - Assist law enforcement agencies and prosecutors in enhancing the prosecutions of federal, state, and local cases involving child
pornography and child sexual exploitation
This presentation will explain the resources NCMEC can provide to law enforcement agencies & prosecution teams working child
pornography cases. There will be several illustrations of how child victims depicted in online child pornography have been identified all
over the world. In addition, various investigative strategies will be presented to aide in the identification of unknown child victims.
COOP Modernization and the National Mesonet – Where NLETS fits
The modernization of the Cooperative Observer Network (COOP), managed and maintained by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) and its National Weather Service (NWS), will result in building the National Cooperative Mesonet (NCM), an
integrated, surface observing system designed to monitor the weather, water and climate variability across the United States. This
cross agency program for the nation will be expandable and adaptable to meet the current and future needs of NOAA and its many
public and private sector partners. This presentation my Dr. Crawford will give additional details to this project and how it could fit in
with NLETS mission to provide information to the justice community. There has been discussion at the last TOC regarding utilizing
NLETS to connect the COOP interstate creating the National Mesonet.
National Insurance Crime Bureau Overview of Products and Services
Dan Abbot, NLETS representative will be on hand to provide an overview of the latest initiatives from NICB including the License Plate
Reader program with Customs and NLETS and many others.
