Gun and Gang Violence Reduction Initatives
The proliferation of violent crime in the United States and the criminal acquisition and use of firearms are critical issues for law enforcement.
The proliferation of violent crime in the United States and the criminal acquisition and use of firearms are critical issues for law enforcement. The IACP Gun and Gang Violence Reduction Initiatives include several partners, projects, and products that aim to improve the level of knowledge, communication, and collaboration to effectively address gun violence affecting communities throughout the nation.
The IACP’s partnership with the Department of Justice (DOJ) Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) has a history of success and steady growth. The IACP Project Safe Neighborhoods National Training and Technical Assistance Initiative, with support from DOJ, works to improve law enforcement’s capacity to interdict firearms trafficking and disrupt gang activity. In collaboration with state, local, tribal, and federal partners, the IACP provides training, technical assistance and resources to improve law enforcement’s gun/gang violence reduction and prosecution efforts.
The IACP, in collaboration with the Department of Justice (DOJ) Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the IACP Firearms Committee, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) developed a mobile application (app) designed to assist law enforcement officers with processing recovered firearms. The app features information on firearms safety, firearms marking identification tools, firearms tracing tools, and other valuable information.
IACP and The Joyce Foundation Initiatives
The IACP, in collaboration with the Joyce Foundation, a Chicago-based organization that aids in reducing gun violence in the Great Lakes States, work to address illegal gun trafficking, officer safety, domestic and family violence, illicit drug markets and their tie-in to firearms and gang-related violence. As a result of the IACP and Joyce Foundation partnership, resources such as the Reducing Gun Violence in Our Communities: A Leadership Guide for Law Enforcement on Effective Strategies and Programs,the Taking a Stand: Reducing Gun Violence in Our Communities report, and the Law Enforcement Leadership Roundtables on Gun Violence brief were produced.
Web based tools, such as webinars, resource briefs, and podcasts are coming soon!
