The purposes of the Summit were to educate the attendees on the resources and technical assistance available from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), obtain input from the practitioners on NIJ research priorities, identify the major problems facing small and rural agencies, and collect information for the completion of a report that can help guide funding and research for these unique agencies.
The Summit was funded by NIJ in a cooperative agreement with SRTBRC which managed the event. There was no cost to the participants and their agencies. Participants were selected from across the United States primarily due to their recognized roles as leaders in the small and rural law enforcement community.
