IACP Studies Gun Trafficking along the I-95 Corridor.

The IACP received a Bureau of Justice Assistance grant in December 2010 to examine the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) iTrafficking initiative, a program that provides firearms crime analysts at pilot site fusion centers in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New York to study trafficking of firearms. The IACP effort involves examining the role of fusion centers in the timely collection, analysis, and dissemination of criminal intelligence based on crime gun tracing to support strategic partnerships between local, state, and federal law enforcement to interdict firearms trafficking and reduce violent crime.

On April 3 this year, IACP senior program manager Elaine Deck and IACP fellow from ATF Ross Arends gave a presentation on the iTrafficking initiative in Phoenix, Arizona, at the National Fusion Center Training Event. The presentation explained the program and highlighted some of the progress documented at the pilot fusion centers under examination. Several fusion center directors expressed an interest in having an ATF contractor at their respective fusion centers. At this time, the ATF also is examining the program to determine the initiative‚Äôs viability in other geographic regions given the preliminary outcomes from the first four pilot sites. IACP staffers continue to work closely with the IACP Firearms Committee to inform members of progress and to benefit from member experience and guidance. ♦
