|NLECTC's central information source|
|By Joe Russo, Assistant Director, National Law Enforcement & Corrections Technology Center|
The National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC) is a component of the National Institute of Justice's Office of Science and Technology, and serves as an "honest broker" offering support, research findings, and technological expertise to help state and local law enforcement and corrections personnel perform their duties more safely and efficiently.
In response to an articulated need for access to a central source of quality, authoritative data and technical assistance related to establishing, operating and evaluating electronic monitoring programs, NLECTC launched its Electronic Monitoring Resource Center, a web-based, searchable database that contains documents in the following subject areas:
Legislation – which includes proposed and enacted laws from various states on issues related to electronic supervision;
In addition to this online resource, NLECTC also has staff with considerable expertise in offender monitoring who can provide technical assistance to agencies. This service, as well as access to EMRC is offered free of charge to criminal justice agencies.
Access to the site is limited to active, public sector criminal justice professionals. Those interested in participating must first request access and provide contact information before they receive a username and password. To see the type of information available within EMRC and to request access, please visit https://emresourcecenter.nlectc.du.edu.
NLECTC believes this is an important resource for the corrections industry that will allow practitioners to expand their networks and help them share information with their colleagues across the country.
