We are thrilled to announce that CPI OpenFox has successfully upgraded the Nlets interface of the Michigan State Police (MSP) to comply with Nlets XML standards. This significant achievement brings Michigan one step closer to meeting the Nlets mandate of phasing out outdated, non-standard dot delimited text formats.

The Scope of Our Work

Our team diligently worked on converting the legacy text formats to standardized XML formats, aligning with Nlets’ objective to retire the existing legacy text formats. This comprehensive endeavor involved transforming all currently utilized Nlets transactions, with the exception of a few responses, into fully tagged, standardized XML formats in accordance with the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) schemas provided by Nlets.

All fully tagged in-state XML responses sent to and accepted by Nlets will remain unaffected. However, in-state responses that require modification prior to being forwarded to Nlets will be sent as text and encapsulated in NIEM XML.

Moreover, we have provided standard presentation style sheets that will seamlessly convert the new XML message formats received from Nlets into easily readable text, ensuring smooth communication with our end-user clients.

We are proud of our accomplishment in completing this project and look forward to continuing our commitment to delivering innovative solutions that enhance efficiency and compliance in law enforcement communication.
