The Contract for Policing Justice is an agenda for research on legitimacy and effective policing, the goal of which is to provide a roadmap to ensure effective and unbiased law enforcement. It is divided into three sections, which reflect the three areas that conference participants identified as most pressing: unwarranted disparate police treatment of minorities; immigration and immigrant community issues; and internal legitimacy within police agencies. Each is a critical area urgently in need of rigorous research.
