In many ways technology has been a help and a hindrance for the corrections field. People working in the field struggle to decide how to handle these technologies...if at all. Technology consistently changes faster than corrections and/or society can keep up with it. Implementing a technology, or plans to battle it (take cell phones for instance), can be a long and difficult process, and before new technology can be implemented, things may have changed. This package page contains information about: computers & the internet, apps, body cameras, bio-metrics & facial recognition, cell phones, drones, electronic monitoring & GPS, and x-rays & scanners, in order to provide information on the biggest trends in technology for the corrections field.
