This article highlights findings from a study that grew out of NIJ's interest in better comprehension of the types of technology law enforcement was acquiring in the new century and the extent to which those technology decisions were tied to strategy development and broader organizational change.

The study was designed in three parts: (1) a U.S.-wide survey using questions designed by an expert panel; (2) site-level examination of a sampling of high-technology and mixed-technology agencies; and (3) use of findings to develop a framework to guide police agencies on technology selection, implementation, and use.
