Hard Data

Oct 13, 2020

This episode of Hard Data highlights Extreme Risk Protection Orders, a promising new resource for communities and law enforcement agencies in several states. Dr. Shannon Frattaroli, associate professor at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, discusses the history and ongoing evolution of these targeted interventions designed to keep firearms away from people in crises. Temporary injunctions have the potential to prevent homicides and suicides, she says, but we need to take a science- and evidence-based approach to implement them effectively and appropriately.
