Description

The Law Enforcement Advancing Data and Science (LEADS) Civilians program offers a unique opportunity for law enforcement civilians to partner with LEADS Scholars, Alumni, and Academics in an effort to use data-driven strategies and locally-tailored research to advance their agency’s mission. NIJ is piloting the addition of LEADS Civilians with the goal of strengthening the LEADS programs ability to advance evidence-based policing in the US.

The most critical element of this program is that LEADS participants have the option of receiving technical assistance on projects (e.g., improving data collection and analysis, integrating existing research into policies and practices, designing research projects) of their own choosing.  Participants are encouraged to pursue projects that directly respond to the priority needs of their agency.  While in the program (a three-year commitment) LEADS participants will have access to researchers and program staff to support these efforts.
