This Research for the Real World Seminar explores common police practices for responding to gun violence and the extent to which they are contributing to reductions in violent incidents. The panel also explored the role of multi-disciplinary partners such as the public health sector in reducing gun violence, and discussed promising practices for law enforcement partnerships to leverage complimentary violence reduction efforts.
