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. The purpose of this initiative is to support local and tribal jurisdictions’ 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 Myrtle Beach Police Department will hire a crime analyst and secure an analysis and triage package to analyze NIBIN leads. They will purchase a NIBIN cartridge case acquisition station, NIBIN locking system for storage, a NIBIN room evidence storage system, and security camera. Also, they have budgeted funds for travel and training. CA/NCF
