Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $349,508)

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 Texas Office of the Attorney General proposes to utilize its FY07 PSN award funds to continue funding dedicated prosecutors in Travis and Bexar Counties. Additionally, the Odessa Crime Stoppers will continue to provide training and outreach to law enforcement and the public. While the Western District ranks very high among other Districts in the number of prosecutions each year, gun crime remains a serious problem.
