Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $152,995)

The purpose of this project is to enhance the safety in the community of Anniston, Bessemer, Birmingham, Huntsville, and Tuscaloosa, Alabama by implementing evidence-based enforcement and crime prevention strategies that disrupt and deter community violence through focusing upon the most violent offenders and gangs in the most violent areas of the Northern District of Alabama. Due to the increase in violent gun crimes, domestic violence, and drug trafficking in the prioritized hotspots, the United States Attorney’s Office Northern District of Alabama will implement a comprehensive, collaborative, and locally-directed Project Safe Neighborhoods strategy to make each city safer, which will build upon the foundation laid over preexisting PSN and Public Safety Partnership initiatives. The comprehensive strategy will use a multi-faceted approach to decrease violent gun and gang crime through focused enforcement, collaboration between local and federal prosecutors, and community-based prevention, partnerships, and community engagement.
