Gun Violence Prevention Strategy: Supporting Law Enforcement
Goal: The Joyce Foundation supports efforts by police, prosecutors and attorneys to ensure the effective enforcement of laws that can combat gun crime and violence.
Theory of Change: Strict enforcement of existing gun laws is a critical part of reducing gun violence. Law enforcement officers and prosecutors play an important role in enforcing the law and keeping communities safe. Existing laws must be vigorously defended to provide police and prosecutors with the tools they need to do their jobs.
