Gun Involved Violence Elimination Initiatives

The GIVE program, and the Institute’s partnerships with these jurisdictions, builds on the GIVE predecessor, Operation IMPACT (Integrated Municipal Police Anti-Crime Teams). Through Operation IMPACT, NYS provided funding to multi-agency task forces in each of seventeen NYS jurisdictions to support strategic crime-reduction initiatives.
