Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $49,997)

In October, 2003, the IACP, in cooperation with NIJ and the Association for Doctoral Programs in Criminology and Criminal Justice (ADPCCJ), convened a National Roundtable on Law Enforcement and University Research Partnerships. The goal of the roundtable was to recommend strategies to promote and strengthen partnerships between police and university researchers to better meet the research needs of both partners. The final report of that meeting includes an 'Action Agenda' suggesting steps to achieve this goal.

This proposal addresses two of the major recommendations in the Roundtable Report:

' Publication of a 'Guide for Law Enforcement Executives' on creating and sustaining effective partnerships with local colleges and universities to accomplish urgently needed police research and evaluation; and
' Publication of a 'Guide for University Based Researchers' on creating and sustaining effective partnerships with state, county, local, and Tribal law enforcement agencies, both to further university research goals and to enhance law enforcement research and evaluation capacity.
