With this solicitation, NIJ seeks proposals for rigorous research and evaluation projects that examine (1) the impact of the reallocation of police resources consequent to redefining police mandates on  public safety and public services; (2) implementation and sustainment of long-term organizational change in policing agencies; and (3) police recruitment, retention, and training in today’s environment. As it regards police recruitment, retention, and training, NIJ seeks proposals for a comprehensive landscape analysis, complemented by case studies that evaluate current recruitment and training practices and strategies and/or explore the effects of modifying current recruitment and training practices and strategies in response to the calls for reform of policing mandates.
