SMART Approaches to Reducing Gun Violence

Nine of thirty-five Smart Policing Initiative (SPI)-funded police agencies nationwide have targeted gun violence as part of their Smart Policing Initiatives (Boston, Massachusetts; Los Angeles, California; Baltimore, Maryland; Joliet, Illinois; Las Vegas, Nevada; Cambridge/Somerville/Everett, Massachusetts; Kansas City, Missouri; Rochester, New York; and East Palo Alto, California). This report reviews the common strategies that police have employed across those nine sites. These evidence-based strategies, which reflect core tenets of the SPI, are grounded in a risk-focused framework that recognizes the importance of targeting efforts on the places, people, and times at greatest threat of violence.
