ABSTRACT

Second Annual Conference on Law Enforcement Technology for the 21st Century: Conference Report   [open pdf - 561KB]

"Technologies can provide new options for law enforcement agencies seeking ways to reduce the use of violent or lethal force in confronting uncooperative suspects. Furthermore, new technologies are essential to assist law enforcement in maintaining at least some parity with the methods criminals employ in trying to escape detection and avoid apprehension. This second Law Enforcement Technology Conference was designed to generate and illuminate discussion on core issues; to continue a strong dialog and partnership among law enforcement, industry, and government; and to facilitate the goal of bringing the criminal justice community into the 21st century. The conference considered a host of law enforcement issues-liability, public safety, business opportunities, technology needs, technology as a force multiplier, technology affordability, government responsibility, and opportunities to leverage research and development. In addition, the program highlighted technology achievements since the first conference and examined the movement of technology to the marketplace, including production and marketing, creative financing, and the role of government agencies."
