Abstract: This is the first issue of the NIJ Journal under a new policy of focusing each issue on a single theme that involves research input from a variety of scientific disciplines.

The feature articles address NIJ-funded research pertinent to the following correctional issues: the adverse impact of incarceration on dependent children; the identification of at-risk corrections officers; reflections on Colorado’s study of administrative segregation in prison; the role of equipment performance standards in correctional settings; the importance of a holistic safety, health, and wellness research program; the identification of technology needs and innovations in corrections; and harnessing the power of technology in institutional corrections.
