CJI’s Library Services features one of the most comprehensive collections of law enforcement resources in the State. The library provides reference materials to Arkansas law enforcement practitioners who need information on criminal justice-related topics. The library houses numerous books, journals, periodicals, training manuals, and video resources that can be utilized by law enforcement agencies across the State for in-house training, research, and professional development.

Books and videos are loaned for a two-week period and can be requested and renewed by phone or email. For those who cannot visit the library in person, items can be mailed with the understanding that the requesting party will be responsible for the return postage only. Purchases for the library are selected for their relevance to the law enforcement community and by the recommendations of law enforcement personnel, CJI Advisory Board and CJI staff.

(Note: Most of the books and video resources can be checked out for off-site use for two-week intervals. However, the reference books, journals, and periodicals are for in-house use only.)
