Evaluation of the Milwaukee Police Department's Crime Gun Intelligence Center report cover

This study presents an evaluation of the Crime Gun Intelligence Center (CGIC) initiative in Milwaukee conducted by a research partner team from the National Police Foundation and George Mason University. The report covers the operations and impacts of the CGIC program from 2014 through 2017. In summary, the evaluation suggests that the CGIC program in Milwaukee has high strategic value in targeting the city's gun violence prevention efforts. Ballistics evidence generated through NIBIN testing is helping the MPD focus on repeat shooters and networks of active offenders who account for roughly half of fatal and non-fatal shootings in Milwaukee.
