What does GJXDM do?

The Global Justice Extensible Markup Language (XML) Data Model (GJXDM) is an XML standard designed specifically for criminal justice information exchanges, providing law enforcement, public safety agencies, prosecutors, public defenders, and the judicial branch with a tool to effectively share data and information in a timely manner. The GJXDM removes the burden from agencies to independently create exchange standards, and because of its extensibility, there is more flexibility to deal with unique agency requirements and changes.

A long long-term goal is to provide a baseline model for the data dictionary that can be represented in advanced technologies beyond XML Schema.
