Project Longevity

Focused Deterrence

Group Gun Violence by the Numbers

Our achievements are contingent upon cohesive and sustainable law enforcement and civilian partnerships that are collaborating in a unique way to keep Connecticut's communities safe from gun violence. Utilizing focused deterrence strategies honor core deterrence ideas, such as increasing risks faced by offenders, while finding new and creative ways of deploying traditional and non-traditional law enforcement tools to do so, such as communicating incentives and disincentives directly to targeted offenders.

Looking at data will help in providing a meaningful picture of the impact of Project Longevity and gun violence perpetrated by gangs or groups in a particular area.  We believe that most people consume information differently as our site is visited by residents of our communities, researchers, students, journalist and many others. We hope that the data visualization tools will help provide an illustration of activity related to group or gang drive gun violence.

Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping displays the geographic distribution of incidents. Our data visualization and mapping displays page will allow you to pan and zoom the map and filter crimes by type (e.g. aggravated assault, murder).

 Interactive dashboards will help our communities to better understand the data in context of group violence intervention.
