Our main print collection is comprised of over 20,000 books focused on the fields of law enforcement and criminal justice: topics include cybercrimes, forensics, patrol, SWAT, criminal investigations, community oriented policing, leadership, terrorism response/investigations, intel analysis, and much more. These items circulate for 30 days and are renewable provided items are not waitlisted.
The NCJA library also carries print journal subscriptions on a variety of topics, such as accident analysis, digital forensics, behavioral science/investigative psychology, victimology, suicide/homicide, forensics, threat assessment, and more, as well as popular magazines and trade journals such as Law & Order, SWAT, Police Chief, Sheriff, and similar titles.
The library maintains a collection of nearly 1,000 training videos, including In-Service and BLET materials. These are all available for check-out at 30-day intervals.
While you are on campus, you may browse from a list of recently released movies to borrow, or check out video games and controllers for our two gaming systems.
In conjunction with the library’s print journal collections, the library maintains online access to several key titles not available in any database. These critical publications constitute our ejournals collection, and are available via our research portal (some are on-site restricted). Our library catalog is available 24/7 from any internet-connected terminal. Contact the library
