Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $150,000)

The Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a nationwide commitment to reducing gun and gang crime, links existing local programs together and provides them with necessary tools. PSN 1) takes a hard line against persons involved in gun and gang crime, 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 St. Bonaventure Indian Mission and School, serving as the fiscal agent for the district of New Mexico, will reduce the occurrence of violent gang and gun-related crime, and juvenile and domestic violence on the eastern Navajo Reservation. To accomplish this goal, the PSN Task Force will develop tasks based on a comprehensive, coordinated action plan using data analysis to target high-crime and violence occurrence neighborhoods. The PSN Task Force will implement robust law enforcement gang and gun violence interdiction operations and prosecution objectives. NCA/NCF
