Standalone CGIC Resources




The Police Foundation and its partners through its National Resource and Technical Assistance Center (NRTAC) for Improving Law Enforcement Investigations initiative have developed a series of templates on key local CGIC documents relevant to the development and activities of the local CGIC. These templates were designed and developed by retired ATF and prosecutor subject matter exerts, based off of existing local CGIC materials already in use by high-performing local CGICs across the country. These include a sample Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with all CGIC partners, firearm recovery form, NIBN lead packet, and gunshot detection door hanger.

These templates are for other local CGICs seeking guidance on the above topic areas and can be modified to fit specific agency needs. Templates are “fillable” PDF documents, allowing sites to input their site-specific information around the language in the template.
