The Center for Evidence-based Crime Policy at George Mason University and the JPRC co-hosted a Congressional Briefing on Violence on September 27th.  The videos and presentations can be viewed on the CECBP website. The Briefing was opened by National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Director, Nancy Rodriguez, and included presentations on the following:
