Major Cities Chiefs Association and Bureau of Justice Assistance

Developed by the Major Cities Chiefs Association with support from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, this resource outlines actions and activities that have contributed to successful crime-fighting strategies in the U.S.

The purpose of the Violent Crime Reduction Operations Guide is to identify the critical elements of violent crime reduction efforts. It includes a sample of the programs, services and assistance available from the U.S. Department of Justice.

The guide includes sections on law enforcement leadership, violent crime identification and analysis, and critical elements of strategies to fight violent crime, such as community engagement, partnerships, technology, training and tactics. The Resource and Program Appendix provides a high-level outline of resources, training and assistance available to assist police executives in building capacity, and case studies feature examples of how those resources have been implemented nationwide.
