Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $67,543)
Wyoming experiences rates of violent crime below national averages and has relatively little criminal gang activity. However, crime statistics indicate increases in some categories of violent crime that are a cause for concern. In keeping with the purpose and intent of the PSN mandate, strategy will encompass the entire state. We will use regularly updated crime data from state and local agencies to focus our efforts on areas where violent crimes are most prevalent.
The success of this PSN strategy depends on generating effective partnerships with state, local, and tribal law enforcement along with prosecutors, particularly in the areas where violent crime is most prevalent. The United States Attorney, with assistance of the PSN coordinator and in conjunction with federal law enforcement agencies, will initiate or further develop existing partnerships with state, local, and tribal law enforcement along with county and district attorneys throughout the district.
Violent crime activity within the State of Wyoming will utilize various policing and enforcement methods to direct law enforcement activities on specific issues or groups that have been identified as driving factors of violent crime.
