By tracking the exact location of gun violence, we gain valuable data that can be used for delivering targeted, non-enforcement-based interventions. These interventions are designed to bring social and economic resources to the doorsteps of residents who have recently or persistently experienced gun and gang violence.
Made possible through data-sharing between law enforcement, offices of violence prevention and community stakeholders, these interventions have been shown to prevent immediate retaliation and address the trauma and toxic stress that are known causes of systemic violence in at-risk communities.
Join our webinar of skilled experts and practitioners to learn more about this non-traditional use of data, how it all works, and how it’s already helping to prevent violence in a handful of diverse cities across the country.

Resources and Handouts
- Handout: Walking One Stop
- “Better community engagement leads to better investigations. The one stop walks were amazing to hear about. Offering services to those where shootings occur will empower and help the individuals and community. I wish this could be implemented in Portland, Oregon, Seattle, Washington and Phoenix, Arizona. Excellent what the panel members shared and are directly involved in. Very impressive. The general public needs to hear about these community programs that include police in a positive way.” — Anne
- “Innovative collaboration does work. Also agree that the exposure to violence experienced by our children impacts their potential for future violent behavior. I would like to see more agencies working together in a proactive approach prior to violent crimes occurring in my state. More outreach for youth and strategies to decrease poverty and violence are needed. This presentation was very well done and gave a great overview into strategies that are having a positive impact.” — Cheryl
- “Excellent presentation. We have a Community Engagement team here. I know they go to door to door and hand out resources. I would say, please get out in the neighborhoods more. Make your presence known. We also have a Gun violence team, and the Chief of Police is a part of that team. One of our City council members came to my church Sunday to discuss the gun violence in our community. We have had church events where we invite the community to come our church and have movie on the lawn with all kinds of food.” — Faye
