dc.description.abstract To improve our understanding of what leads to successful researcher‐practitioner collaborations between those working within and outside of the CJ system, we conducted the RPPS, which had two parts. For Part One, SAAs in all 50 states were contacted to provide information about the agency’s infrastructure regarding research and researcher-practitioner collaborations; respondents were people responsible for overseeing research in the SAA or for conducting research themselves on behalf of the state. Seventy-five participants from 49 states completed the survey, with several states having multiple respondents from different SAA research departments (i.e., departments of corrections, offices of the courts, etc.). Of respondents, 41% were administrators or directors of the agency, 35% were supervisors or managers, 21% were front-line or support staff, and 3% were university-employed Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) directors2. For Part Two, academic researchers and CJ system practitioners in the United States and Canada participated in interviews and focus groups about successful collaborations. Participants were 55 women and 17 men of various racial and ethnic groups. They were employed in a range of settings located in urban, suburban, and rural settings, including family violence and sexual assault programs, private practice, and SAAs, such as departments of corrections, local county courts, independent research institutes, and colleges/universities. They had 4 to 40 years of experience (average of 12 years). Results from this study suggest that changes in policy can promote more effective research collaborations, which, in turn, can provide a stronger evidence base for CJ practice and policy.
