NIJ has launched an open competition to develop new methods for capturing community perceptions of police and public safety that are representative, cost effective, accurate across microgeographies, and capable of being administered frequently.

A total of $175,000 in prizes is available, and will be divided between the two submission categories: 

  • Category 1 is for approaches that use a survey instrument whether the sampling design is probability, nonprobability, or some combination of the two. 
  • Category 2 is for approaches that use non-survey instrument methods to measure constructs.

Review the Challenge.
