In recent years, gun control policy has dominated the American political agenda for senior executive law enforcement leaders. Today, political pundits on both sides of the aisle regularly cite gun statistics supporting either a pro or anti-gun control stance. With mass shootings occurring with regularity, (Parkland, Florida; Waffle House, Nashville, Tennessee; and Santa Fe High School, Santa Fe, Texas), research into gun ownership behavior is becoming increasingly important for public policy creation and public safety. While extant research tells us that firearm ownership is woven into the historical fabric of American culture, senior executive law enforcement’s visionary leadership has yet to fully explore gun violence reduction program strategies. Visionary leadership maintains a compass heading for ethical vision, moral decision making, and listening to followers. This research will include documentation from the Chicago Police Department (Chicago, Illinois) gun violence reduction program. This qualitative case study may help to provide specific program procedures which may reduce violence and improving communities. There is a lack of research identifying senior executive law enforcement collaboration as an effective technique to reduce gun violence.
