Research and Evaluation on Jails
OJP is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights and racial equity, increases access to justice, supports crime victims and individuals impacted by the justice system, strengthens community safety and protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community.
With this solicitation, NIJ seeks to add to the body of empirical knowledge on local jails to inform development of policy and practice, in order to improve outcomes for people confined to jails, their families, their communities, and jail personnel. NIJ requests proposals for rigorous research to examine all aspects of jail systems, including those that address the basic operations of jails and their impact on staff, incarcerated individuals, and their communities. Key priorities include promoting and supporting research that informs:
Improving reentry outcomes for people confined to jails, as well as minimizing the negative impact of jail incarceration on the families of justice-involved individuals and their communities;
Optimization of workforce development for jail personnel; and
Enhancement of jail operations and practices.
