WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Counterdrug Technology Assessment Center's (CTAC) Technology Transfer Program needed a mobile video system for undercover officers. The program, which is sponsored by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and administered by the U.S. Army Electronic Proving Ground, helps local law enforcement improve their counterdrug capabilities by providing federally funded advanced technologies to local and state law enforcement agencies.

The aim of the CTAC technology transfer program is to identify emerging technologies that can best improve officer safety and aid in criminal apprehension. The program will make available Law Enforcement Associates' wireless video kit. This portable system utilizes sophisticated wireless radio frequency technology to provide law enforcement personnel with a powerful tool for recording audio and video in undercover situations.

The CTAC technology transfer program was enacted by Congress in 1998 and provides assistance for obtaining the necessary equipment and training for counterdrug deployments and operations at the state and local level. All equipment is transferred to each recipient agency at no cost and becomes the permanent property of that organization.
