The National Institute of Justice (NIJ), a research agency of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), released the fiscal year 2018 (FY18) solicitation Communications Technologies Research and Evaluation for Law Enforcement and Corrections Applications.

The solicitation seeks proposals for communications technologies research and evaluation projects to develop practical knowledge to inform deployment of mobile broadband communications technologies for U.S. law enforcement agencies or to identify feasible technology solutions to combat the use of contraband wireless devices in correctional facilities.

NIJ seeks to increase knowledge and evidence about what works regarding communications technologies for law enforcement and corrections applications, curated in such a way to allow for the greatest possible use across the nation. This solicitation supports the DOJ’s priorities of reducing crime, protecting officers and other public-safety personnel, and reducing victimization. NIJ expects to make at least one award in each application area with an estimated total amount awarded of up to $2 million.

The application deadline is April 23, 2018. The solicitation is here. The funding opportunity number is NIJ-2018-14045.
