Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Advisory Council (LECTAC)
The Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Advisory Council (LECTAC) was the primary "big picture" link between the law enforcement and corrections community and the NIJ science and technology programs. Council members were appointed by NLECTC based on their records of distinguished service and included representatives from federal, state, local and international criminal justice agencies and organizations.
Working to strengthen ties between NIJ and the law enforcement and corrections community, LECTAC, along with the Technology Working Groups, commented on and analyzed the present and future technological needs of the criminal justice system. LECTAC used this information to recommend research and development priorities to NIJ and advised NLECTC on equipment testing, the creation of standards, user guidelines and technical reports. At the same time, it relayed information about NIJ's technology programs and products back to the criminal justice community.
