CIRV is a multi-agency and community collaborative effort designed to quickly and dramatically reduce gun violence and associated homicides, with sustained reductions over time. This focused-deterrence strategy brings together a partnership of multiple law enforcement agencies (local, state, and federal), social service providers, and the community to establish a clear message to violent street groups - Stop the violence and stop the killing. CIRV was modeled loosely on the Boston Gun Project from the mid-1990's, but is setting new standards for accountability and institutionalization, managerial seriousness, efficiency, and effectiveness. This initiative has been highlighted both locally and internationally for its success and ingenuity.
