Police, Law Enforcement,Criminal Justice, public safety and government Technology

Police, Law Enforcement,Criminal Justice, public safety and government Technology The navigation links to your above will take you to a variety of locations and provide you with additional information about the author, the book police technology, the subject of police technology and perhaps the course. While the title of the book implies that it looks just at “Police” technologies, rest assured that not only are many other law enforcement related subjects explored, but how technology impacts the entire criminal justice system is also addressed. The book could easily carry the titles public safety technology, criminal justice technology, law enforcement technology; Homeland Security Technology or even basic business technology or government technology. For students, the links above correspond to the four sections of the Police Technology. At each destination you will find additional hyperlinks to web-based resources that help explain many of the concepts in Police Technology.

Travel Tips: Advanced imaging technology

TSA uses advanced imaging technology to safely screen passengers at the checkpoint. Advanced imaging technology uses automated target recognition software that eliminates passenger-specific images and instead auto-detects potential threats by indicating their location on a generic outline of a person.

Technology Transfer

Through partnerships and licensing of its intellectual property rights, NREL seeks to reduce private sector risk in early stage technologies, enable investment in the adoption of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies, reduce U.S. reliance on foreign energy sources, reduce carbon emissions, and increase U.S. industrial competitiveness. Develop mutually beneficial collaborations and align actions with business outcomes. Conduct technology partnership processes through professional practices, action, and a respect for duty. Keep partners informed of goals, processes, decisions, and the status of actions as agreements are developed. NREL’s Technology Transfer Ombuds offers an informal process to help resolve issues and concerns regarding the laboratory’s technology partnership, patent, and licensing activities.

Primitive Technology: Simplified blower and furnace experiments

Blower description The purpose of this project was to test a simplified blower design connected to a furnace. This blower differed from the previous one in several ways to simplify the construction method. Firstly, the impellor was simply a stick as a rotor with a 40 cm wide rectangle of bark tied into a split in its end with a bark fibre cordage. If spun in the dirt the rotor can drill down and the position of the impellor can reach ground level causing the blades to bump into rocks and dirt. Secondly, the housing for the blower was made in situ of ordinary mud. An opening more than half the length of the impellor was left in the roof to remove the impellor for maintenance and to admit air into the blower during operation. In use, the portion of this opening near the front of the blower was covered with a tile. If left opened the blower still worked but covering it improved performance by preventing air escaping near the front. Note that this is a centrifugal blower with a symmetrical housing, therefore it doesn’t matter whether the fan spins one way or the other, the blower will always suck air in to its open top and force it into the furnace. For the drive mechanism, I chose this method because the first blower I built had too many parts. In the new design, the simple cord in the notch of the rotor did away with the frame and the bow of the old design and the associated difficulties. The blower was used to power a furnace attached to the front of it. Note that with minimal materials, the blower could simply force air into a hole in the base of the furnace and work satisfactorily. During operation, the blower forced air up through the grate into the burning fuel bed increasing the rate of heat production relative to the use of natural draft alone.
