NIJ's drugs and crime research portfolio promotes cost-efficient law enforcement, court, and corrections responses to illegal drug markets (including diversion of legal drugs) and criminal behavior related to illicit drug use. This FY2017 solicitation seeks investigator-initiated proposals to conduct research on criminal justice activities including: 1) criminal investigation and prosecution; and 2) drug intelligence and community surveillance. NIJ has identified two drug priorities: heroin and other opioids (including diverted prescription drugs); and novel psychoactive substances (also known as synthetic drugs).
