The purpose of this program is to leverage state, local, or tribal subject-matter expertise to assess areas of need and to develop strategies, tools, and policies in collaboration with BJA staff for the benefit of the criminal justice field. BJA will collaborate with practitioners and researchers to build capacity to address gaps in priority and emerging issues in the criminal justice field. Priority issue areas are prosecution, law enforcement data and performance management, public safety officers benefits support, prison rape elimination, and corrections reform and recidivism reduction. The grantee will examine police innovation in the United States with an emphasis on predictive, intelligence-led, and smart policing. This grant project includes the following four goals: 1) Enhance the capacity of law enforcement to use predictive analytics and tools associated with predicitive policing; 2) Improve law enforcement's ability to use research findings and data-driven methods; 3) Enhance program development and innovations in law enforcement; and 4) Increase BJA staff's understanding of innovation in law enforcement, particularly predictive- and intelligence-led policing.
