"Throughout the history of Nlets, the organization has shown a consistent pattern of innovation and adaption in its effort to keep abreast of the latest changes in technology and meet the information sharing needs of the criminal justice community.  The need for the rapid, secure exchange of information between criminal justice agencies will only increase, and I’m confident Nlets will continue to meet that need.”

Montana Department of Justice 

"Nlets is an amazing organization, dedicated to excellence in the exchange of criminal justice information.  Technically, Nlets is the core of a rapid, secure state-of-the-art network linking state, federal and international criminal justice agencies and databases. Within seconds, through Nlets, an agency can communicate with one, some or all of our nation’s law enforcement agencies. Through Nlets, officers can query out-of-state and Canadian vehicle registration, drivers’ license, criminal history files, and so much more – accessing critical information to assist them in saving lives and furthering justice. Agencies know they can count on Nlets, with over 125 different types of messages and message traffic exceeding 1 billion annually, Nlets still maintains 99.97% network availability - amazing!

Nlets is amazing because of the many dedicated people committed to its mission. Owned by its membership and directed by a Board of engaged representations, Nlets works because there is a true partnership. Nlets leads with strength in collective innovation and expertise. NLETS is successful because it has an excellent staff that gets things done. Nlets is self-funded and yet finds ways to give back to its membership to ensure joint success – amazing!"


Ted DeRosa
Nlets Region G Chairperson
Manager and ISO

Colorado Bureau of Investigation

"Nlets is critical to Colorado for the connections and information it provides to our law enforcement officers and the people who support them.  Having an always-ready network which allows our officers to quickly get information nationwide makes every officer more effective. Nlets partnerships with businesses who support our mission and infrastructure are additional benefits that keep our officers informed and connected.  Finally, Nlets encourages collaboration and innovation; and employs a bright, committed staff willing to push the next great idea to help us keep our communities safe."
