Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) / Randomized Field Experiment

Refers to an experimental research design in which participants are randomly assigned to a treatment or a control group. Most social scientists consider random assignment to lead to the highest level of confidence that observed effects are the result of the program and not other variables.

Technology & Forensics

The justice community uses many forms of technology and forensic science techniques to assist in crime prevention, intervention, and response. Examples include body armor, information technology such as data analysis and mapping tools, radios, records management systems (RMS), closed circuit television (CCTV), license plate recognition (LPR) systems, and DNA evidence examination.
