Introduction to the Crime Gun Intelligence Center

Yesterday, Chief Bryan Roach was joined by Mayor Joe Hogsett as well as local and federal law enforcement partners to introduce Indianapolis’ Crime Gun Intelligence Center (CGIC) to the community.
The CGIC model focuses on the collection and real-time analysis of crime gun evidence from homicide and non-fatal shootings using forensic technologies. By helping detectives connect a single perpetrator to multiple crime scenes, Indianapolis’ CGIC is generating investigative leads that result in the arrest and prosecution of repeat violent offenders, and the removal of crime guns from the community. Year-to-date, CGIC investigations have yielded 38 arrests and removed 28 crime guns from Indianapolis neighborhoods.
Partner agencies include:

  • IMPD
  • The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF)
  • Indianapolis-Marion County Forensic Services Agency
  • Marion County Prosecutor’s Office
  • United States Attorney’s Office – Southern District of Indiana
  • Indiana University
  • Indiana Department of Corrections
  • Marion County Probation Department
  • Marion County Community Corrections
  • Numerous local, state, and federal agencies that collaborate through the Indianapolis Violence Reduction Partnership (IVRP) 
CGIC builds upon the City’s efforts in 2018 to disrupt violent crime and crack down on the illegal possession of firearms by violent criminals. IMPD increased collaboration with law enforcement partners, began training “gun liaison” officers to more effectively collect crime gun evidence, and returned the department to community-based beat policing, allowing officers to build stronger relationships in the neighborhoods they serve. These efforts led to a five-fold increase in the number of leads generated through the ATF’s National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN), roughly 1500 gun cases filed by the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, and double the number of IMPD gun cases filed in federal court as compared to 2017.
