The FY16 Violence Reduction Network (VRN) is a comprehensive initiative to leverage existing DOJ resources to deliver strategic, intensive training and technical assistance (TTA) to local jurisdictions experiencing a precipitous increase in violent crime. Through the FY16 VRN TTA program, BJA will deliver TTA to state and local law enforcement agencies, and other justice system agencies in select jurisdictions, to assist them in addressing violent crime.

Under Category 2 of the FY16 VRN TTA program, the Institute for Intergovernmental Research (IIR) will support the infrastructure and logistics of VRN including online training, networking, and technical assistance; onsite support for strategic planning and networking; peer-to-peer learning; and the development and implementation of two VRN national multi-day summits for VRN sites, to include appropriate faculty and subject matter experts.
