Suggested Project Reports for BJA Grantees

The goals of the national BJA grantee funded programs include increasing the capacity for data-driven processes to support the implementation of evidence-based and evidence-informed practice. Ultimately, these practices are intended to support public safety and crime prevention, delivery of justice, and greater system efficiencies.  In support of these goals, it is critical to learn from the experience of BJA grantee programs and to share this learning across the criminal justice professional and research communities.
