Nlets and the IJIS Institute Establish Alliance Partnership to Formally Acknowledge Collaboration
Phoenix, Arizona, October 16, 2017: Nlets and the IJIS Institute have entered into an Alliance Partner agreement, formalizing a long-standing relationship with the goal of better serving law enforcement and first responders through information sharing.
“While Nlets’ primary partnership has always been with government, the latest advancements and recent growth of our capabilities has come about through our relationships and partnerships with Industry,” Nlets Executive Director Steve Correll said. “This Alliance Partnership with IJIS serves to formalize a long-standing and mutually beneficial friendship.”
Nlets is proud to have created strong public/private partnerships with organizations that support law enforcement and first responders. These partnerships support our core business by serving the needs of our members and allowing qualified organizations to securely and appropriately use the national and international reach of Nlets for the benefit of the justice community.
Potential Alliance Partners must go through an outreach and evaluation phase before signing a Memorandum of Understanding to establish the formal relationship. Alliance Partners do not have access to the Nlets network.
