In 2016, two New York State jurisdictions were selected as sites for the nonfatal shooting initiative, a demonstration project funded by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS). The cities of Newburgh and Utica were each provided with grant funds to dedicate personnel to nonfatal shooting investigations, as well as in-kind support. The police departments committed to conducting thorough investigations of all nonfatal shootings, and the district attorneys committed to support "evidence-based" prosecution even in the absence of a cooperative victim. Evidence from the two demonstration sites reveal a number of steps agencies may take in order to tackle the problem of holding offenders to account and doing justice.
