The goals of the Prosecuting Cold Cases using Forensic Technology solicitation are to: 1. Prosecute violent crime cold cases where a suspect has been identified and 2. Decrease the number of unresolved violent crime cold cases. Through this program, NIJ will provide grant funding to support the prosecution of "violent crime cold cases" and the necessary processes, including forensic analyses, leading to cold case resolutions. The Prosecuting Cold Cases using Forensic Technology program supports the Department's criminal justice priorities of reducing violent crime and supporting law enforcement officers and prosecutors by providing resources to address violent crime cold cases.
