Amber Alert NIEM Specifications

This section describes NIEM format specifications and provides NIEM examples of Amber Alert Messages (AA) for state broadcasts.

Nlets now provides a standardized response format for this message type. The standardized format for this message is anticipated to be supported on the Nlets production system by July of 2016. Please contact Kate Silhol at ksilhol@nlets.org for additional information regarding implementation.

All Nlets NIEM messages must be based on the Nlets NIEM Message Structure and include the standard Nlets XML Header as detailed in Message Structure. The NIEM header and hierarchy of the elements in this section have been omitted to avoid redundancy. The associated schemas and instances should be consulted to determine the correct XPaths of the elements.
