About the Resource Bank

The Resource Bank was developed in partnership with the Colorado Office of Gun Violence Prevention (OGVP) and the Injury and Violence Prevention Center at the University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus.    

It features resources and materials to support firearm injury and violence prevention, including an external resource library and a data dashboard.  

The resource bank is organized into multiple sections, each focusing on a specific topic related to firearm injury prevention. It will grow over time with future sections on a variety of topics related to firearms in Colorado. The library of external resources strives to provide information rooted in evidence. Each item underwent a rigorous evaluation and approval process prior to publication. 

For more details on how the external resources were reviewed, please read the External resources web page

The data dashboard presents data in a user-friendly interface. Data include morbidity and mortality rates of firearm deaths, CBI (Colorado Bureau of Investigation) background checks, and Extreme Risk Protection Order use in Colorado. The data dashboard is intended to be a tool for the public, researchers, lawmakers, and others to see what is happening in their communities regarding firearm-related outcomes.
