Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $149,275)

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 Community Foundation of Central Georgia Inc. will use their FY07 PSN funds to continue their outreach activities. Operation ELIMI-CON, a secure website that hosts all of the information collected on listed offenders, will be funded to pay consultant costs for data management, analysis, and interpretation; task force training and technical assistance; the addition of interactive maps; and performance of annual updates and website improvements. Macon Regional Crimestoppers will be funded to continue and expand the development of methods for delivering the Hard Time for Gun Crime message using 24 billboards, PSAs, movie ads to be shown in Macon and Warner Robins movie theaters, bus wraps throughout Macon, and a second bus wrap illustrating a Bibb County Sheriff's patrol car.
