National Institute of Justice to Fund Research on Increasing School Safety

If your school has an interest in juvenile justice and school safety, you might be interested in applying for the 2014 National Institute of Justice (NIJ) grant entitled Developing Knowledge About What Works to Make Schools Safe. The funding is for schools to learn more about how personnel programs and activities contribute to their school safety. An example is hiring resource officers and mental health service providers to increase school safety. Applications are due on July 10, 2014. See the link above for more information.
