Technology Decision ToolPublication Date: 2012
Summary: As budgets shrink and public safety needs grow, agencies must keep a watchful eye on the bottom line. Although officer and community safety is always a priority, efficiency of operations is a key consideration when making purchasing decisions. The Technology Decision Tool helps agencies make safe and sound acquisitions.
The tool was developed by the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center with input from technology experts from both large and small agencies who have first-hand experience in successfully evaluating and implementing technology projects. It guides agencies through a customized cost/benefit analysis exercise to help them make the best decisions for their officers and their communities. It directs decision-making based on needs, availability of technology and lifecycle costs of products and training. Safety considerations meet budget realities and viable solutions are offered and evaluated.
