GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The Gainesville Police Department shares its concerns with the community regarding the significant increase in violence (homicides, shootings, and gun-related crimes) within the City of Gainesville. We are committed to combating the harm or fear of harm to our neighbors as a result of gun violence.
The Gainesville Police Department will deploy agency resources while working with the community and other agencies to ensure all neighbors feel safe in our city. Our goal is to identify individuals with a high propensity for committing gun-related violence or those who may be at risk of becoming victims of said violence and, ultimately, to reduce incidents of gun violence. This will be accomplished through thorough data collection and analysis, which will result in precise, intelligence-driven policing tactics. Included in these tactics will be selective enforcement and intervention practices, all aimed at reducing gun violence. Additionally, members of the initiative will contact various neighbors in the identified areas to educate them about our efforts and solicit feedback.
The goal of this initiative is to reduce incidents of gun-related violence in the City of Gainesville. GPD urges our neighbors to report all instances of gun violence and proposed violence observed on social media. We encourage anyone who is being victimized to report it to law enforcement by calling “911” or calling Lt. J. Robinson at 352-642-5823. To seek program services assistance from the Alachua County Victim Services, please call 352-264-6760.
