This site contains information on everything related to law enforcement and technology, from biometrics and body armor to standards and testing. Originally created in 1994 as a component of the National Institute of Justice's (NIJ's) Office of Science and Technology, the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC) system serves as an "honest broker" offering support, research findings, and technological expertise to help State and local law enforcement, corrections, and other criminal justice personnel perform their duties more safely and efficiently.
To better align the NLECTC system with NIJ's Research, Development, Testing, and Evaluation (RDT&E) activities. On September 20, 2007 NIJ announced the addition of four Technology Centers of Excellence (CoE) as part of the NLECTC system.
While I have not directly used this in the classroom, I have used it for research on technology in criminal justice. I believe that this site will provide a good background and a good starting point for someone looking to learn more about the use of technology in criminal justice. With the ever changing nature of technology and its applications, this is a nice way to stay informed.

An eclectic source of information, one can get a fairly comprehensive view of emerging technologies an capabilities of various federal agencies. I found it especially useful for students entering law enforcement or corrections in the near future, or who are already working in the system.
The videos on body armor and prison riot training are large enough that they may load slowly for classroom use. Depending on your connection speed, it is advisable to download the video before class starts.
