Grants for Testing Geospatial Predictive Policing Strategies
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is seeking applications for research that explores the relationship between theory and geospatial predictive policing strategies. In particular, NIJ is seeking research that explores the relationships and disconnects between current geospatial predictive policing strategies and scientific theory(ies).
The goal of the proposed research is to demonstrate how empirical results can be used to improve upon, or change, current theory and practice. This program furthers the Department’s mission by sponsoring research intended to provide objective and independent knowledge to meet the challenges of crime and justice, particularly at the State and local levels.
