National Institute of Justice Journal Issue No. 280

NIJ logoThis issue of the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Journal discusses some of the many ways NIJ has committed to advancing the law enforcement profession through science, from building in-house law enforcement research capacity to understanding the ways that artificial intelligence and other technologies have transformed criminal justice. The journal includes a discussion of the establishment of the Law Enforcement Advancing Data and Science (LEADS) Scholars program and the LEADS Agencies program and how they can help empower law enforcement officers to answer many of their own high-priority research questions.
