Agencies dream of the resources seen on TV crime shows: the latest technology, gleaming, newly-built workspaces, and not a backlog in sight.

But building a crime gun intelligence initiative doesn't mean new buildings. And it doesn't have to mean breaking your departmental budget.

Rather, establishing a crime gun initiative is more about the program: identifying the proper balance of people, processes and technology agencies need to address the critical components of any investigation:

  • Comprehensive Collection
  • Timeliness (providing leads to investigators within 24 – 72 hours of a firearm-related offense)
  • Investigative Follow-Up
  • Feedback

But such an initiative also involves a well-coordinated team – the investigators, forensic experts, and prosecutors – who manage the handoffs/exchanges of data and information required, such as:

  • Responding & Collecting Information and Evidence
  • Extracting & Analyzing the Information and Evidence
  • Pursuing Information/Evidence & Apprehending Suspects

So where does a law enforcement agency begin to develop a crime gun intelligence initiative?

Fortunately, we have some experts who can help you get started!

During this course you will learn:

  • How the right mix of people, processes, and technology impacts an investigation,
  • To identify the “gaps” in the investigative team and how to manage those gaps effectively,
  • The steps involved in developing a crime gun intelligence initiative, and
  • The best practices from lab and law enforcement personnel (local, county, federal).
