    The prevalence of gun violence brings harm to our communities. Law Enforcement agencies are tasked with confronting a variety of serious incidents to provide public safety, as well as addressing the problems that lead to and promote violence, such as firearm trafficking and illegal firearm possession. Beyond injuries and fatalities, gun violence affects our society’s overall well-being and affects the quality of life for all. Much of it takes place in at-risk or underserved communities, and gun violence incidents are often unreported or go unnoticed. With the rise of gun violence in the US it is becoming a larger and more costly issue than many realize. In this webinar, a panel of academics and policing experts will discuss innovative tools and strategies for reducing gun violence in the US stemming from the Police Foundation’s gun and violence-related research and projects.
