NIJ’s Research Conference Registration has Closed
NIJ is hosting a 3-day, in-person conference from May 23-25, 2023, in Arlington, Virginia. The theme of NIJ’s National Research Conference is “evidence to action,” as our goal is to bring researchers and practitioners together to learn about the latest research evidence, and how it can be implemented to promote safety, equity, and justice.
IACA Call for Papers
NIJ’s seeks presentation proposals for the International Association of Crime Analysts 2023 Conference that will translate research into actionable information.

Scholarships to Advance Science in Policing
NIJ is now accepting applications for our Law Enforcement Advancing Data and Science Scholars (LEADS) programs for law enforcement officers, civilians, and academics. The LEADS Scholars Programs advance evidence-based policing by supporting the development of research-minded law enforcement professionals and their academic partners through travel, training, research support, and partnership opportunities.
Fast Screening of Gunshot Residue
NIJ-supported researchers developed an unprecedented gunshot residue dataset to develop a quick, dual-detection method for gunshot residue. The methodology creates a new path for addressing court-relevant queries regarding the firing of a weapon.
Polyvictimization is generally defined as an experience or experiences of multiple types of violence, abuse, mistreatment, or other adversities. Polyvictimization typically refers to two or more different types of victimization — such as sexual violence and physical abuse — rather than multiple episodes of a single type of victimization.
Criminal Justice Data Archives
The National Archive of Criminal Justice Data archives data on crime and justice and contains data from over 2,700 curated studies or statistical data series. The website is home to several large-scale datasets, including the National Crime Victimization Survey, FBI's Uniform Crime Reports and National Incident-Based Reporting System, and the Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods.
