    National Institute of Justice (NIJ)


    NIJ is committed to building a knowledge base focused on the safety, health, and wellness of individuals employed within criminal justice occupations, individuals under the supervision of the criminal justice system, and members of the public as they interact with the system. 

    In FY 2018, NIJ requests applications from the following categories: 

    • Impact of Fatigue and Stress on Officer Performance - NIJ seeks innovative research and/or evaluation proposals to expand the understanding of the cumulative effects of shift-work schedules, overtime, and secondary employment on the health, safety, performance, and quality of life of police or correctional officers in the United States. 
    • Impact of Occupational Prestige and Job Satisfaction on Officer Stress Resilience - NIJ seeks proposals for funding innovative research and/or evaluation projects examining the relationship between law enforcement and/or correctional officer perceptions of occupational prestige and job satisfaction and stress resilience.
    • Enhancing Strategies for Officer Interaction With Mentally Ill Individuals - NIJ seeks proposals for research and/or evaluation projects to explore alternative strategies to the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) model. Specifically, NIJ seeks applications proposing the translation and implementation for law enforcement and correctional purposes of best practice strategies, from the public health sector, for interacting with individuals with mental illness. Preference will be given to applications that propose to examine public health strategies for which application to criminal justice purposes is new and innovative. 
    • Reducing Traffic Related Officer Fatalities and Injuries Through Technology Enhancement and Policy - NIJ seeks innovative research and/or evaluation projects to explore the potential for reducing traffic-related officer fatalities and injuries through: (1) technology enhancements to improve the delivery of information to the officer while in their vehicle; and (2) policies and practices for handling calls for service. 

    In addition to required data sets, interim and final progress and financial reports, NIJ expects scholarly products to result from each award under this solicitation, taking the form of one or more published, peer-reviewed, scientific journal articles, and/or (if appropriate) law review journal articles, book chapter(s) or book(s) in the academic press, technological prototypes, patented inventions, or similar scientific products.
