Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC) performs yearly assessments of key technological needs and opportunities facing the justice system. The center is responsible for helping identify, develop, manufacture, and adopt new products and technologies designed for law enforcement, corrections, and other criminal justice applications. The NLECTC concentrates on four areas of advancing technology: (1) communications and electronics, (2) forensic science, (3) transportation and weapons, and (4) protective equipment. Once NLECTC researchers have identified opportunities for improvement in any area, they make referrals to the Law Enforcement Standards Laboratory—a part of the National Bureau of Standards—for the testing of available hardware (Schmalleger, 2017). In conclusion , criminal justice system has many special issues to deal with. I discussed the link between drugs and crime, the juvenile system, causes of terrorism, and crime and technological advancement. If law enforcement has not continued to stay on top of all these reoccurring issues, they will become progressively worse as the years pass by. By outlining and determining the causes of some of these special issues we can get to the root of the problem and develop better ways to correct them here in the United States and across the world.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
