Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $90,890)

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 Delaware Criminal Justice Council will use their FY07 PSN funds to implement the gun violence strategies of the PSN Task Force. They will provide investigative assistance in those cases designated as gun violence prosecutions to occur in the state courts. The Task Force will be able to utilize the research and data component of the PSN effort to develop and execute more investigations and to continue to follow up on all gun crimes throughout the District, including the tracing of firearms and the entering of firearms in the IBIS system.
