Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $699,324)

Tucson Police Department (TPD) is pursuing the FY23 CGIC Grant to expand and enhance its current gun crime intelligence program, which is the only active NIBIN center in southern Arizona. The TPD currently processes crime guns and casings from 20 agencies located all over southern Arizona and even in New Mexico. The region, and Tucson in particular, has seen a dramatic gun violence spike in the previous five years, disproportionally affecting minority communities. In response, TPD has implemented an aggressive and holistic violence reduction strategy. The TPD restructured investigative units, technological systems and partnerships in order to focus on data driven intelligence that are in keeping with CGIC best practices.
