Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreement to a USA nonprofit organization, IHE, for-profit, Tribe, or local government to collect statistical data related to the justice system. Applicants are advised that required registrations take several weeks to finalize. Funding is intended to create a new program that would allow the Bureau of Justice Statistics to obtain data that are difficult for individual jail facilities to aggregate and are therefore impractical to collect through jail establishment surveys.

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) is seeking applications for funding for the FY 2021 Local Jail Reporting Program Pilot Test. This pilot test will collect individual-level administrative record data from 10 large jails. The information collected will include jail admissions and releases, demographic characteristics of inmates, charges and dispositions, and sentences.

The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) is seeking applications for funding to conduct a pilot test of the Local Jails Reporting Program (LJRP), a new jail-data collection of individual-level jail inmate administrative records. The LJRP will capture jail bookings with timestamps and information on the circumstances of admission and release. It will also collect data on a one-day snapshot of the jail population, including demographic and criminal justice characteristics of inmates, such as offense or charge, bail and temporary release, court disposition, and sentence. The data collected from the LJRP will be used solely for statistical and research purposes. The LJRP will describe the movement of arrested persons through the jail system. In particular, the individual-level booking data will be key to understanding important issues, such as pre-trial detention, the use of bail and temporary release, and jail recidivism (by linking records of the same individuals). Approximately 11 million people are admitted to the more than 3,000 local jails each year. The sheer volume of associated jail records represents not only a unique opportunity for jail research, but also a challenge to efficiently capture, process, and analyze administrative data from different jail jurisdictions. The 2021 pilot test aims to collect data from about 10 of the largest local jails in the United States. About 6% of the total jail population will be covered. Through the pilot test, BJS will explore best practices to gain jail support for the LJRP and to deal with complex administrative booking data. If funding is available, BJS will consider gradually increasing collection coverage in future years.
