Annotation: This issue profiles the National Institute of Justice’s (NIJ’s) technology institutes for law enforcement, corrections, and rural law enforcement.
Abstract: The technology institutes provide a free, week-long experience in which participants share information on projects, issues, and solutions while developing networking opportunities that continue long after the institute ends. The institutes focus on practitioners in agencies with fewer than 50 sworn personnel. Participants present information on technology issues that are affecting their agencies. A few summaries highlight presentation topics from recent institutes. The topics concern “green” vehicles in campus law enforcement, information sharing, surveillance, situational awareness, and threat assessment.
