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.
Time spent reviewing site: one to two hours.

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.

Technical Remarks:

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.
