Friends of Justice Research & Statistics FY25 Funding Recommendation: NIJ ($60M), BJS ($75M)

COPAFS supports FY25 funding of the NIJ for $60M and BJS for $75M.

On behalf of the undersigned organizations, we write to urge the highest possible funding level in the fiscal year (FY) 2025 Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations bill for the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) within the Department of Justice. Specifically, we ask that Congress appropriate $60 million for NIJ and $75 million for BJS. These agencies collectively serve as the research and data-gathering arm of the Department of Justice, filling an important role in helping to understand and implement science-based strategies for crime prevention and control.
