Bureau of Justice Assistance’s SPI Spotlight on Effective Policing Technology Initiative

Book cover

The Strategies for Policing Innovation (SPI) initiative released two Spotlight Reports titled The Role of Technology in the Strategies for Policing Innovation Program: Challenges, Solutions, and Lessons Learned. One report focuses on technology initiatives to reduce crime, such as risk terrain modeling and social network analysis, while the second focuses on hardware initiatives such as body-worn cameras and gunshot detection systems.

These reports provide information on successful policing technology initiatives; the impact of technology initiatives on SPI agencies; and challenges and lessons learned for agencies considering similar initiatives.
