Comprehensive crime gun investigative methods and tools work very well and show rapid results in smaller jurisdictions. Prosecution of armed felons, drug dealers and gang members in a systematic way with mandatory prison time is also part of the equation. Communication with the community is also vital and showing results can increase participation of reluctant witnesses.
The webinar participant will learn strategies to identify and remove their most violent offenders. Concentrated efforts in smaller jurisdictions can make a measurable difference in violent crime rates. Partnerships with federal and state agencies are a great benefit to making these strategies work. Communicating the results of your efforts to the community is vital both through meetings and the media. Conviction statistics with prison time is much more powerful than reporting arrests.
