Grant to a USA university for projects to research law enforcement practices. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for research projects to establish the degree to which law enforcement practices for preventing and responding to the sex trafficking of minors have changed since the adoption of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000. This program furthers the Department’s mission by sponsoring research to provide objective, independent, evidence-based knowledge and tools to meet the challenges of crime and justice, particularly at the state and local levels.
With this solicitation, NIJ aims to better understand how law enforcement practice with regard to preventing and responding to the sex trafficking of minors has evolved since passage of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000. NIJ is specifically interested in understanding how widely law enforcement agencies have adopted practices that are based on the perspective that the minor is a victim as opposed to a delinquent, and the challenges that agencies have faced in adopting such practices. Applications that do not propose to address these two topical areas will not be considered.
Applications proposing research involving partnerships with criminal justice or other agencies must include a strong letter of support signed by an appropriate decision-making authority from each proposed, partnering agency. A letter of support must include the partnering agency’s acknowledgement that the awardee will archive de-identified data provided through this project in the National Archive of Criminal Justice Data (NACJD) at the conclusion of the award. If selected for an award, applicants will be expected to have a formal agreement in place with partnering agencies by January 1, 2021. That agreement must include provisions to meet the data archiving requirements of the award. In rare circumstances, for example, where law prohibits the archiving of agency data, NIJ may agree to a successful applicant creating and archiving an appropriate synthetic dataset. Those circumstances will be rare, decided by NIJ on a case-by-case basis, and will require extensive documentation and justification for exceptions to be made.
