The Gang Reduction of Denver (GRID) is a network of federal, state, and local government agencies; local businesses; community-based, grassroots and faith-based organizations; and community resident associations that work in a collaborative manner to address gang violence. GRID is housed under the Denver Department of Public Safety and is committed to the suppression and prevention of gun and gang violence in Denver. This is achieved through several strategies including connecting resources within communities, enhancing information sharing and collaboration among agencies, and seeking change in community norms regarding violence.
GRID works to develop and support a network of partner agencies and programs to provide effective and efficient prevention strategies that collectively strengthen families and communities, provide effective and efficient case management intervention strategies to high-risk gang members and their families, and ensure effective enforcement of violent gang crimes.
GRID operates under the strategic direction of a committee working together to facilitate any necessary policy action and address the removal of barriers to support implementation efforts. The GRID Policy Steering Committee is responsible to ensure the integrity of the project by monitoring accountability, transparency, sustainability, and public trust.
