Annotation: Using the model of the innovation process presented by Rogers in 1983, this study examines the history of the National Institute of Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice (NILECJ) to encourage research and development in criminal justice.
Abstract: Congress created NILECJ in 1968 to encourage research and development in criminal justice. The agency has experienced three major phases. The early technology years covered the period 1968-74. The basic research years went from 1975 to 1982. The years from 1983-89 have been the policy-relevant years. The analysis concludes that throughout its history, the Institute has failed to integrate its innovation-diffusion mission systematically and fully. More systematic attention to integrating the entire innovation-diffusion process in the future will strengthen the production and application of new ideas.
