The Law Enf orcement and Corrections Standards and Testing Program is sponsored by the Oice of Science and Technology of the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), U.S. Department of Justice. The program responds to the mandate of the Justice System Improvement Act of 1979, which directed NIJ to encourage research and development to improve the criminal justice system and to disseminate the results to Federal, State, and local agencies. The Law Enorcement and Corrections Standards and Testing Program is an applied research ef ort that determines the technological needs of justice system agencies, sets minimum perormance standards or specif ic devices, tests commercially available equipment against those standards, and disseminates the standards and the test results to criminal justice agencies nationally and internationally. The program operates through: The
 Law n f or cement and Cor ections echnology Avisor  y Council
(LECTAC), consisting of nationally recognized criminal justice practitioners rom Federal, State, and local agencies, which assesses technological needs and sets priorities f or research programs and items to be evaluated and tested. The
O f  fice of Law n focement St anar ds
(OLES) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, which develops voluntary national perormance standards f or compliance testing to ensure that individual items of equipment are suitable or use by criminal justice agencies. The standards are based upon laboratory testing and evaluation o representative samples of each item of equipment to determine the ey attributes, develop test methods, and establish minimum perormance requirements or each essential attribute. In addition to the highly technical standards, OLES also produces technical reports and user guidelines that explain in nontechnical terms the capabilities of available equipment. The
 National Law nf or cement and Coecions echnolog y Center ( NL E CT C) ,
operated by a grantee, which supervises a national compliance testing program conducted by independent laboratories. The standards developed by OLES serve as perormance benchmarks against which commercial equipment is measured. The acilities, personnel, and testing capabilities of the independent laboratories are evaluated by OLES prior to testing each item of equipment, and OLES helps the NLECTC staf review and analyze data. Test results are published in Equipment Perormance Reports designed to help justice system procurement oicials mak e inf ormed purchasing decisions. Publications are available at no charge through the National Law Enf orcement and Corrections Technology Center. Some documents are also available online through the Internet /World Wide Web.
