Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $57,733)

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 Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police, serving as the fiscal agent for the district of Wyoming, will reduce the number of gun and gang related crimes and violence in the state utilizing the most effective and most cost-efficient strategies available. This will be accomplished through the following activities: providing gun-crime and anti-gang training to state and local corrections, law enforcement officers and prosecutors; continuing to provide education and awareness presentations to community members of the Wind River Indian Reservation; creating a Task Force to direct and fund PSN related enforcement and prosecution efforts in the communities with the highest incidents of reported gun crimes; creating an Anti-Gang Task Force in communities impacted by out-of-state gang influence to provide more effective local and statewide strategies.
