Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $1,000,000)

The establishment and operation of a Corrections Technology Center of Excellence (CX-COE), which will serve as the authoritative resource within the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC) System with respect to corrections technology; to facilitate the transfer of new technologies into practice; and to provide objective technology assistance/information to agencies. The CX-COE will work with national practitioner groups to identify high priority technology requirements for both Institutional and Community Corrections, which are key inputs into the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Research, Development, Testing and Evaluation (RTD&E) process, and provide support by helping to define portfolio objectives, assessing ongoing projects, identifying promising new technologies and participating in organizations that support the adoption of technology.
