Learn More About the Mass Violence Advisory Initiative from the Bureau of Justice Assistance and the International Association of Chiefs of Police
The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) recently collaborated to launch the Mass Violence Advisory Initiative (MVAI). The initiative aims to equip law enforcement leaders and their communities with expert assistance, guidance, and rapid response resources in the event of targeted acts of mass violence. Through this effort, BJA and IACP help connect local law enforcement leaders with peer-to-peer assistance teams that comprise law enforcement professionals with experience navigating acts of mass violence. The services available through MVAI will be provided at no cost to an agency in need.
