Learn about Training and Technical Assistance Available through the National Crime Gun Intelligence Center Initiative

In partnership with the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s National Resource and Technical Assistance Center for Improving Law Enforcement Investigations Project, the Local Law Enforcement Crime Gun Intelligence Center (CGIC) Integration Initiative, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the National Police Foundation will provide training and technical assistance (TTA) services to new fiscal year 2019 CGIC grantees beginning in October.

CGICs are an innovative and collaborative concept developed by ATF that identify armed violent offenders for investigation and prosecution in order to reduce and prevent violent crime. CGIC operations include close collaboration among ATF, local police departments, local crime laboratories, probation and parole offices, prosecuting attorneys, crime analysts, and other partners. The goals of CGICs include:

  • Decreasing gun crime incidents;
  • Enhancing gun crime investigations, clearance rates, and prosecutorial outcomes; and
  • Increasing public trust in law enforcement through community engagement.

The National Police Foundation’s TTA services will include guides and checklists, technical briefings and trainings, and quick reaction assessments provided by violent crime experts. CGIC replication sites and other selected agency points of contact may request TTA by completing the Training and Technical Assistance Request Form or by contacting the National Police Foundation at TTA@policefoundation.org or 202-833-1460.
