Corrections Technology Center of Excellence
On Oct. 1, 2010, the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) established the Corrections Technology Center of Excellence (CoE) as part of the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC) system.
Operated by the University of Denver (DU), 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:
Providing technology assistance and support to corrections agencies on a national basis, including providing science and engineering advice and assisting first adopters with new tools and methods.
