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 Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services, serving as the fiscal agent for the Northern District of Ohio, will fund research and training through the Northern Ohio Violent Crime Consortium (NOVCC) and to support the U.S. Marshalls Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force (NOVFTF). The U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force is a collaborative, district-wide law enforcement effort spearheaded by the U.S. Marshals Service that is dedicated to the pursuit, apprehension, and successful prosecution of adult fugitives across the Northern District of Ohio.
