Corrections Technology Center of Excellence
The 2013 Technology Institute for Corrections focused on the issue of contraband cell phones in correctional facilities. Institute participants discussed contraband cell phones, and technologies and strategies to address the problem. By bringing together corrections practitioners from across the country, the institute provided a platform to collaborate, share and gather information. The After Action Report is available to law enforcement and corrections professionals by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 800-248-2742.
On Oct. 1, 2010, NIJ established the Corrections Technology Center of Excellence (CoE) as part of the NLECTC System.
Operated by the University of Denver, the Corrections Technology CoE serves as the authoritative resource within the NLECTC System for both practitioners and developers with respect to technologies that support institutional and community corrections. The Center’s position within DU allows it to leverage a wide array of multidisciplinary research units to accomplish its mission.
In its primary role, this CoE assists in the transition of technology from the laboratory into practice by first adopters within the correctional community. Specifically, the Corrections Technology CoE supports NIJ’s research, development, test and evaluation activities within the corrections portfolio by:
