Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $2,400,000)

This award was competitively made in response to a proposal submitted by The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) to a National Institute of Justice FY 2013 solicitation: "Establishing a National Criminal Justice Technology Research, Test, and Evaluation Center." The goal of this solicitation was to establish a center within the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC) System to provide research, test, and evaluation (RT&E) support to inform NIJ's non-forensic research and development (R&D) efforts and its efforts to inform the field concerning technology and related issues in a more innovative, sustainable, efficient, and effective manner. Among the activities that this center will perform are: (1) conducting a market survey and technical assessment of the alternative location-based offender monitoring technologies available to law enforcement and corrections agencies for monitoring offenders under community supervision; and (2) providing independent analytic and evaluation support to agencies and/or research organizations receiving awards under NIJ's FY 2013 "Evaluating the Efficacy of Lighting, Marking, and Painting Schemes in Reducing the incidence of Law Enforcement Vehicle Crashes" solicitation. ca/ncf
