Congratulations to Captain Tye - 2021 NIJ LEADS Scholar

August 5, 2021 10:10 AM

We are proud to announce that Captain Matt Tye (who oversees our Community Outreach section) was selected as a recipient/scholar of the 2021 National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Law Enforcement Advancing Data and Science (LEADS) program cohort! 

What is this exactly?  The NIJ LEADS Scholars Program recognizes the importance of research as a tool for law enforcement agencies to make decisions and to measure the decisions.  Captain Tye has done just this within our agency by effectively using data, research and evidence to inform policy and practice for the MPD. 

Captain Tye is not the only MPD member to be acknowledged by NIJ LEADS and selected as a scholar.  Chief Barnes (2015 - https://nij.ojp.gov/bio/shon-barnes), Retired Captain Cory Nelson (2015 - https://nij.ojp.gov/bio/cory-nelson) and Assistant Chief Paige Valenta (2018 – https://nij.ojp.gov/bio/paige-valenta). 

Congratulation Captain Tye!
