Centre for Applied Research
Applied Research at the JIBC has grown exponentially since the establishment of the Office of Applied Research in 2008. Our research signature is unique in Canada as research is designed from the standpoint of First Responders. JIBC research is targeted to solve practical real-world problems in justice and public safety.
Advancing justice and public safety through applied research
Findings and evidence from JIBC research projects are translated into state-of-the-art curricula, public safety and security interventions, and are intended to inform evidence-based policy and programs. Since 2008, we have developed an applied research portfolio with project grant, contract and proposal commitments that exceed $10m. We are Canada’s degree granting Institute for scholarship and applied research in justice and public safety.
The Centre for Applied Research was created to build JIBC research and scholarship capacity. Our Faculty and Research Associates (Adjunct Faculty) generate new knowledge in public safety and security by asking new questions. Our Faculty also participate on the JIBC Applied Research Committee (ARC) and Research Ethics Board (REB). The Centre convenes events including training and applied research forums, workshops and the annual JIBC Research Day.
The JIBC Research Ethics Board consists of senior faculty members who work with investigators to ensure adherence to the November 29, 2010 Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS2). The JIBC Board of Governors has approved a suite of Applied Research Policies and Procedures which ensure that all research with human participants receives approval from the Institute’s Research Ethics Board and is in compliance with the Tri-Council ‘gold standard’ guidelines and Policy Statement.
