National Law Enforcement & Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC) — http://www.justnet.org
-- At the core of the NLECTC System is the notion of "translational technology", simply put, we link research with practice. It works in other fields, such as medicine. It also works in criminal justice. As a program of the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the NLECTC System is the conduit between researchers and criminal justice professionals in the field for technology issues. NLECTC works with criminal justice professionals to identify urgent and emerging technology needs. NIJ sponsors research and development or identifies best practices to address those needs. NLECTC centers demonstrate new technologies, test commercially available technologies and publish results — linking research with practice.
In short, NLECTC provides free technology assistance for state and local law enforcement. Find out more about the resources they offer on their website.
