The Local Law Enforcement Crime Gun Intelligence Center (CGIC) Integration Initiative, administered by BJA in partnership with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), is a competitive grant program that provides funding to state and local government entities that are experiencing precipitous increases in gun-related violent crime to implement comprehensive and holistic models to reduce violent crime and the illegal use of firearms within their jurisdictions by enabling them to integrate with their local ATF CGIC. The purpose of this initiative is to encourage local and tribal jurisdictionsÂ’ capacity to work with their ATF partners to utilize intelligence, technology, and community engagement to swiftly identify firearms used unlawfully and their sources, and effectively prosecute perpetrators engaged in violent crime.

The City of Saint Paul will develop a CGIC with funding budgeted for: a crime analyst; an NIBIN technician; training; and a CGIC prosecutor. CA/NCF
