Introduced to the community earlier this year, Indy CGIC is an interagency collaboration that puts officers in direct contact with local and federal law enforcement partners. The CGIC model focuses on the collection and real-time analysis of crime gun evidence from homicides and non-fatal shootings using forensic technologies to generate investigative leads, allowing IMPD to more effectively target the most violent offenders and their sources of crime guns. This crackdown on the illegal possession of firearms by Serious Violent Felons is part of the City’s community-focused violence reduction strategy.

The launch of Indy CGIC followed $35 million in public safety technology investments announced last year. Since January, CGIC has led to the removal of 172 violent individuals and 120 crime guns from the community. For a look inside CGIC, click here.
