Everytown for Gun Safety, with support from the Jacob and Valeria Langeloth Foundation and the Donald A. Pels Charitable Trust, developed the City Gun Violence Reduction Insight Portal (CityGRIP), a responsive online clearinghouse of data-informed gun violence reduction strategies. The content found in CityGRIP reflects two years worth of on-site interviews with mayors, police chiefs, sheriffs, and community members in more than 60 communities nationwide.
Many American cities are already implementing evidence-based gun violence reduction strategies. However, cities face a variety of obstacles related to resourcing these efforts, such as high cost, lack of time or buy-in, inadequate technology, and competing priorities. Cities can work to overcome these barriers by developing a tailored gun violence reduction strategy based on their unique circumstances, and leveraging peer-to-peer guidance.
From CityGRIP’s homepage, use the jurisdiction input buttons to create a custom blueprint for gun violence reduction for your city. The more jurisdiction inputs selected, the more comprehensive your blueprint will be. The results will feature a myriad of strategies from the critical stages of city gun violence prevention: tracking and analytics, prevention, intervention, response, and reintegration. Each strategy details the approach, impact, necessary resources, common barriers, key partners, and a case study of the strategy in action.
