This report summarizes the results of a project that the Police Executive Research Forum undertook to explore issues of gun crime in the United States. To prepare for the Summit on Guns and Crime, PERF conducted a survey of all 270 primary police agencies serving cities of 100,000 or more people to explore the nature of their gun-related crime problems and the strategies they have undertaken to reduce shootings and crime. Nearly twothirds of these agencies (164) completed the survey.
In addition, PERF conducted a survey of all 25 field divisions of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), in order to gain their perspectives on the nature of the gun problem.
