Annotation: This is the 2010 Annual Report of the U.S. Justice Department’s National Institute of Justice’s (NIJ’s) National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC) System, which provides free criminal justice technology outreach, demonstration, testing, and evaluation assistance to state, local, tribal, and federal criminal justice agencies.
Abstract: In 2010, the NLECTC System engaged in a transformation designed to reach out to law enforcement and corrections professionals by providing the latest in research and knowledge through the Internet, local conferences, and technology institutes. As part of this reorientation process, NIJ made an adjustment to the way the NLECTC centers provide services to the criminal justice community. Since the professional tools of police and corrections officers have changed over the years, it was fitting for the NLECTC System to adjust its focus to bring these criminal justice professionals the latest information on technological advances. The technological advances promoted pertained to body armor, aviation, biometrics, school safety, forensics, digital evidence, advanced audio and video communications, and sensors and surveillance. JUSTNET, the NLECTC Center System website, was improved and now includes social-media components to provide more timely information. “TechBeat” is now an interactive e-publication. NLECTC has reorganized its Centers of Excellence (CoEs) to promote ongoing research and development that can assist criminal justice professionals. Duplicative services provided by several CoEs were streamlined. The bridge between the NLECTC System and the criminal justice community is the Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Advisory Council (LECTAC). It is composed of leaders from law enforcement, corrections, forensic science, and criminal justice professional associations. LECTAC provides an executive-level review of the high-priority needs identified each year by NIJ’s technology working groups and recommends research-and-development priorities based on those needs.
