Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $272,794)

Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a nationwide commitment to reducing gun crime, links existing local programs together and provides them with necessary tools. PSN takes a hard line against gun criminals, using every available means to create safer neighborhoods; seeks to achieve heightened coordination among federal, state, and local law enforcement; and 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 Arizona Criminal Justice Commission, serving as the fiscal agent for the District of Arizona, will use the grant to reduce the significant gang and gun crime within the state, provide media and community outreach services, and increase the enhancement and sharing of intelligence information and the analysis.
