Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $45,239)

Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a nationwide commitment to reducing gun crime, links existing local programs together and provides them with necessary tools. PSN 1) takes a hard line against gun criminals, using every available means to create safer neighborhoods; 2) seeks to achieve heightened coordination among federal, state, and local law enforcement; and 3) emphasizes tactical intelligence gathering, more aggressive prosecutions, and enhanced accountability through performance measures. The United States Attorney in each federal judicial district will lead the offensive. The fiscal agent, in coordination with the PSN Task Force, will allocate funds throughout the community.

The Eastern District of Oklahoma will utilize their Fiscal Year 2007 PSN funds for a Repetitive Obstacle Performance Enhancement System (ROPES) program for at-risk juveniles, aged 12 to 18, in the community of Muskogee. The ROPES course will provide an alternative activity to redirect behavior away from anti-social, violent activities and toward a group activity which fosters positive relationship building and trust in a non-competitive atmosphere.
