Statistically speaking, 80% of New Year’s resolutions start with good intentions but fail by February. Whether it’s exercising more, better time management, saving money or losing weight, there is generally something that occurs causing things to be derailed.

Throughout the country, a NIBIN program is generally implemented in one of three ways.

The first is a good INTENTION in which someone sees the value of NIBIN, is motivated to see it work and manages to have some level of success with it.

The second is as a good PROGRAM. This is better because there is generally some involvement beyond a single person. However, as with other programs, it competes for resources and, as a result, the program can be sustained but rarely does it ever reach its full potential.

The third is as an ORGANIZATIONAL LIFESTYLE. The agency has decided that NIBIN is the cornerstone to not only solving but preventing gun crime. NIBIN in these instances has truly become part of an agency’s “DNA” and as a result, there is sustained success.

How does an agency make this transition?  Join us for our next webinar where presenters will discuss the evolution of their initiative, detailing specific strategies that have led to success in making NIBIN an organizational lifestyle.
