The “Crime Gun Intelligence Center” Model

This report examines a promising technology-based application: the Crime Gun Intelligence Center (CGIC) model. It presents case studies of the Denver, Milwaukee, and Chicago approaches to investigating gun crime. Crime Gun Intelligence Centers (CGIC) are an interagency collaboration among local police departments, the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), and other partners such as state and local prosecutors, to identify perpetrators of gun crime for immediate investigation, apprehension, and prosecution. CGICs combine state-of-the-art analytical technology, data processing systems, and good old-fashioned detective work to help police agencies more quickly analyze ballistic evidence, establish connections among seemingly unrelated crimes, and build criminal cases targeting both gun traffckers and trigger-pullers.
