BC Crime Reduction Research Program – Call for Funding Proposals

The Office of Crime Reduction and Gang Outreach (OCR-GO), part of the Policing and Security Branch, Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General (MPSSG), is leading the development of a joint-research model in British Columbia through the Crime Reduction Research Program (CRRP).  The CRRP is supported and informed by a Working Group which includes representation from partner agencies including the Crime Prevention and Community Safety Branch (CSCPB) of MPSSG, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia (CFSEU-BC) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) “E” Division.  The purpose of the CRRP Working Group is to identify shared agency priorities that would benefit from the expertise of researchers and academics across Canada.

The CRRP operates a $1M annual funding allocation dedicated to support university-led research at Canadian institutions.  The CRRP focuses on investing in pragmatic research that can be applied to inform policing operations and support evidence-based decision making on policies and programs related to public safety in British Columbia.  The OCR-GO, on behalf of the CRRP Working Group, invites submission of research proposals in support of this mandate.

Eleven research topics have been identified for the first phase (directed call-out) of the 2021-2022 funding cycle.  Please refer to the attached documentation for identified research objectives, eligibility, and the application submission process.  I invite you to disseminate this call-out among your professional networks and any researcher affiliated with a Canadian post-secondary institution is invited to apply for this opportunity.

The current directed call-out is open from September 14th, 2021 to October 15th , 2021.

Please submit your application package to ocrgo@gov.bc.ca no later than 11:59 PM PST on October 15th, 2021.
