Violent Crime Reduction Operations Guide

Developed by the Bureau of Justice Assistance and the Major Cities Chiefs Association, this new guide is intended to identify the critical elements of violent crime reduction efforts and to put before the law enforcement community a sample of the remarkable array of programs, services and assistance available from the U.S. Department of Justice. This guide recognizes the complex challenges confronting today’s law enforcement executives and offers ideas on how to approach the extraordinarily difficult problem of developing effective tactics and strategies to deal with those challenges.
