A Standard for Encoding, Exchanging, and Storing Public Safety Data

The intent of the standard is to specify the minimum requirements to be used to encode public safety information in XML. This standard identifies the need for standardized data entry, specifies data encoding rules, identifies data formats, provides query encoding rules, defines the public safety data model, explains the "relational-izing" of the model, and sets forth typical conventions used. The standard, like the InfoTech project itself, is designed to provide the benefits of cost-effective and secure information sharing across multiple criminal justice agencies.
