5 things you need to know about Gun Crime Intelligence Centers

A Crime Gun Intelligence Center (CGIC) is an interagency collaboration focused on the timely collection, management, and analysis of crime gun evidence, such as shell casings and semiautomatic handguns, using NIBIN and eTrace. The CGIC process occurs in real time to identify serial shooters, disrupt criminal activity, and prevent future gun violence. The primary goal of these Centers is the timely identification, arrest, and prosecution of armed violent offenders. Other outcomes include: the identification of crime gun sources, efficient resource allocation, providing decision makers with the most accurate gun crime data available, and increased public safety.
