Proposals Sought for Optimizing Video Technology

NIJ released a solicitation for proposals from research organizations partnered with state, local, or tribal criminal justice agencies for research related to the use of video cameras in police work. Specifically, NIJ is looking for ideas that identify, realize, and evaluate the use of video cameras and advanced video analysis software that helps control and prevent crime.

NIJ will be most interested in receiving proposals that involve integrating video technology into policing strategies, particularly those that use quantitative data analysis methods. NIJ will also entertain proposals dealing with courts and correctional environments.

Deadline for applications: April 28, 2014. Start your application process early.
