  Annotation: The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) has pioneered many advances in science and technology that help deter, identify, and apprehend offenders and that ensure access by criminal justice professionals to the tools and equipment they need to perform their jobs more efficiently.
  Abstract: In recent years, NIJ science and technology efforts have received further impetus in a number of ways. One is a partnership between the NIJ and the Department of Defense to promote the transfer and adoption of technologies from military to domestic use. Another is the NIJ's establishment of the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center to make technology information and developments more accessible to the field. In addition, the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 has served as a major catalyst for NIJ science and technology developments. A primary area for technology development under this act involves community policing. The NIJ has also supported technology innovations related to DNA testing and forensic laboratories. Science and technology awards made by the NIJ in 1996 are listed. The following information is provided for each project: award number and project title; name of institution, agency, or corporation that received the award; name of principal investigator or contractor; and award amount.
