The president announced a five-part plan. It is aimed at tackling gun violence and other violent crimes by using funds from the American Rescue Plan.

Some of the initiatives in the plan include giving money to cities to hire more law enforcement officials including past pre-pandemic levels, buy new equipment and technology for police departments, help formerly incarcerated individuals reenter society, use resources to hold gun dealers accountable, and invest in community violence intervention programs.

Over the past year, major cities, such as New York City, have seen a spike in violent crime, including shootings.
