In collaboration with the Joyce Foundation of Chicago, the IACP released
Reducing Gun Violence in Our Communities: A Leadership Guide for Law Enforcement on Effective Strategies and Programs. This report is a companion document to the 2007 Taking a Stand: Reducing Gun Violence in Our Communities report. Together, they present a comprehensive set of information on the problem of gun violence. The Leadership Guide takes the reader through the history of gun violence reduction initiatives, then breaks down approaches to firearm violence reduction, looking at firearm diversion and trafficking, working with Federal Firearm Licensees, gun shows, gang violence prevention, youth safety, community safety, and domestic violence.
