ABSTRACT

New Technologies Demonstrated for Law Enforcement   [open pdf - 290KB]

"Police officers and other members of the criminal justice community recently gathered at the Montgomery County Police Department Training Center in Rockville, Maryland, to see demonstrations of and hear presentations on new less-than-lethal (LTL) technologies that may help them perform their jobs in a safer and more efficient manner. Sponsored by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the LTL program presentation and demonstration was held to provide the law enforcement community with an opportunity to critique and evaluate results of the research and development (R&D) efforts funded by NIJ, as well as other technologies under development independently by industry and Federal laboratories. The role that technology can play in enhancing officer and public safety is continuously evolving. The technologies presented herein are in various stages of development - some are relatively mature and need only refinement and commercialization, while others are still at the proof-of-principle stage. The technologies listed below are discussed under two broad categories: vehicle pursuit/interdiction and law enforcement-related confrontational scenarios."
