In an effort to address ways in which law enforcement can successfully combat violent crime, the Major Cities Chiefs Association and the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) have released the Violent Crime Reduction Operations Guide. The guide “offers a unique ‘for the field, by the field’ perspective” focusing on research-based best practices. It includes sections on law enforcement leadership, violent crime identification and analysis, and critical elements of strategies to fight violent crime, such as community engagement, technology, and training.
