A statement of NIJ’s strategic challenges for 2012 features the fostering of science-based criminal justice practice; the translation of knowledge into practice; advancing technology that builds a more efficient, effective, and fair criminal justice system; working across disciplines; and adopting a global perspective. Steps taken to address each of these challenges are outlined. A separate section of the report presents highlights of newly funded projects in FY 2012.
