Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $700,000)

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) Operation Safe Streets Bureau (OSS) will partner with the LASD Scientific Services Bureau (SSB), LASD Major Crimes Bureau Armed and Prohibited Persons System (MCB-APPS) Task Force, Los Angeles County Department of Probation, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s (LADA) Compton Branch Office and the Los Angeles field office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to form a Crime Gun Intelligence Center (CGIC) for the Sheriff’s Department.

The geographical areas of focus for the LASD CGIC will be those areas serviced by the Century and Compton LASD stations as these areas have experienced the most significant increase in gang-related shootings and murders over the last several years.  Narrowing the area of focus to these two areas also allows all cases worked by the LASD CGIC group to be filed with the Compton Branch of the LADA, streamlining the prosecution of these cases.
