What is the AMBER Alert XML Schema?

In 2004, the Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance, US Department of Justice, engaged the IJIS Institute to update the existing GJXDM-conformant AMBER Alert Information Exchange Package Documentation (IEPD), to make it consistent with best practices of GJXDM development, and to update it to version 3.0.2 of the GJXDM.

The IEPD is proposed as a baseline for developing a national standard for AMBER Alert message sets to promote the seamless sharing of AMBER Alert information and between jurisdictions and the technologies they employ.

The IEPD is available in the Justice Standards Clearinghouse at http://www.it.ojp.gov/default.aspx?area=implementationAssistance&page=1017&standard=483.
