New Report! The Evaluation of the Milwaukee Police Department’s CGIC

The National Police Foundation, in partnership with the Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy (CEBCP) at George Mason University, has completed an evaluation of the Milwaukee (WI) Police Department’s Crime Gun Intelligence Center (CGIC) under BJA’s National Crime Gun Intelligence Center Initiative.

MPD CGIC Evaluation Report CoverThe multi-year evaluation details the structure and processes of MPD’s CGIC and assesses the impact of the CGIC on outcome measures such as clearance rates for gun crime investigations and overall gun violence in the City of Milwaukee. The research team found evidence that MPD’s CGIC has improved the agency’s clearance rates for non-fatal shootings, as well as tentative evidence that suggests CGIC-related arrests have reduced shootings.
