Thinking about applying for the Institute?
The RLETI is targeted for the command staff and supervisory personnel of small, rural, tribal and border law enforcement agencies employing fewer than 50 sworn officers. All expenses (travel, lodging, meals) are paid for those selected to attend this event!

Law enforcement personnel will learn about and discuss technology initiatives and issues affecting the small, rural, tribal and border law enforcement community. Participants will receive information and assistance on existing and developing technologies, work through problems relating to technology implementation, and exchange technology lessons learned that are important to the small, rural, tribal and border law enforcement community.
As part of the program, participants are required to give a brief (no more than 15 minutes) PowerPoint presentation on a technology issue that their department has encountered or is in the process of implementing, e.g., implementation of a crime mapping program, new communications system or automated booking station.

The NIJ Rural Law Enforcement Technology Institute (RLETI) is a semi-annual conference that brings law enforcement executives together to share best practices involving technology challenges. Applying for the RLETI is a competitive process, but if selected to attend the Institute you will become members of an elite but growing group of law enforcement professionals who are prior alums. Attendees comment that they return home with lifelong contacts and several new ideas to address technology challenges in their jurisdiction, often leaving with solutions to problems they didn’t realize they had.
One of the strengths of the Institute is the ability to network with other law enforcement professionals across the country. A complete list of prior attendees can be located at www.srtbrc.org/rleti/alumni-search along with contact information and a database of technology issues and solutions presented at previous Institutes. Feedback from attendees is always overwhelmingly positive – and if selected for attendance you’ll find that your time away from your organization is time well spent.
