This funding opportunity seeks proposals to conduct applied research that examines criminal justice tools, protocols, and policies concerning drug trafficking, markets, and use applicable to state, tribal, and local jurisdictions. Applications must address one of two research categories: 1) narcotics, forensic science, and medicolegal death investigation and prosecution; or 2) drug intelligence and community surveillance. National Institute of Justice (NIJ) has identified two drug priorities: 1) heroin and other opioids (including diverted prescription drugs); and 2) novel psychoactive substances (also known as synthetic drugs).
