This award supplements funding for award #2009-IJ-CX-K019. This award was competitively made in response to a proposal submitted by the Center for Rural Development (CRD) to an NIJ FY2009 solicitation Criminal Justice Technology Regional Centers. The purpose of this supplement is to enable CRD to continue to host the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center System's (NLECTC's) Small, Rural, Tribal and Border (SRTB) Regional Center. The principal role of the regional centers is outreach and technical assistance (TA). They provide TA actively through engagement with the communities that they serve through, for example, technology institutes, and workshops.
This award was competitively made under the FY09 NIJ "Criminal Justice Technology Regional Centers" solicitation. That solicitation sought proposals to conduct regional outreach activities within the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC) System to improve the access to and awareness of relevant scientific and technology-related information by State and local criminal justice practitioners. The Center for Rural Development, Inc. (CRD) received an award to establish and host a center focused on small, rural, trial and border agencies, the NLECTC-Small, Rural, and Tribal Border (SRTB) Regional Center.
The purpose of this supplement is to enable CRD to continue its operation of the SRTB, to include continuing to assist law enforcement agencies in acquiring surplus and excess federal property; hosting one or more technology institutes for small law enforcement agencies; hosting one or more summits to identify the unique criminal justice technology needs of small, rural, tribal, and border jurisdictions; and supporting NIJ's efforts to transition small unmanned aerial systems into practice with law enforcement agencies in a safe, effective, and lawful manner. Small and rural agencies in particular have a need for lower cost aviation solutions. nca/ncf
