The fact that Datamaxx is the only private company in the United States authorized by the FBI to host criminal justice data - and that its network operations center is routinely audited by the FBI, DHS, NLETS

In the pilot program, all Amber Alert messages concerning the abduction of a child or children will be distributed through the NLETS network, providing immediate, unfettered access to all federal and state justice agencies in the nation and Canada.
According to Chris Warner, a co-founder of the Consortium, the relationship with NLETS "will bring the Consortium closer to its ultimate goal of ensuring so efficient and seamless a network that no one will ever consider abducting a child again.

The ATS Pyramid XMR will give Connecticut the ability to exchange information with other law enforcement entities using XML and Web Services, while Pyramid XN2 will provide the State with low cost browser access to NLETS and NCIC.

Created by the principal law enforcement agencies of the states nearly 35 years ago, NLETS
has evolved to serve the justice community at the local, state, and federal levels.
