SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Information sought: CJTEC is seeking information on products, such as application software and other technologies, that can help the law enforcement community monitor and manage their own mental health and wellness. Specifically, the team is seeking technologies that fit one or more of these categories:

  • Products specifically developed for the use of the law enforcement and criminal justice community
  • Products specifically developed for first responders or individuals in analogous high-stress work environments
  • Products designed as consumer/corporate mental health and wellness tools but are applicable to the law enforcement community

Usage: Information provided in response to this request may be published in a landscape report on mental health and wellness application software for law enforcement. This RFI is intended to solicit important general information from product developers, which may lead to later discussions to help complete a technical specifications table about the product that will be referenced in the report.

CJTEC is seeking a response from technology vendors/developers that includes:

1. Name and description of product

2. The type of product (application software or other technology-enabled solution)

3. Who this product was created for (law enforcement/criminal justice community, first responders, general employees, or other)

4. Overview of product features and literature supporting concepts behind the application software

5. Research studies on efficacy of the application software

6. User testimonials

7. Photo/screenshot of the product

8. Contact information for a future conversation (name, role, email, phone number)

An independent response should be submitted for each product that respondents would like CJTEC to consider in their landscape report. NIJ encourages respondents to provide information in common file formats, such as Microsoft Word, pdf, or plain text. Each response should include contact information.
