Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $89,392)
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 Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency, serving as fiscal agent for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, will support state-wide partnership with their Community Outreach Partner, the Pennsylvania District Attorney Association. In addition, they will fund the development of district wide crime statistical analysis and law enforcement training. The Middle District of Pennsylvania will continue to partner with the appropriate agencies in an effort to successfully implement the PSN/Anti-Gang strategy. The U.S. Attorney's Office, along with the PSN selection committee and task force, will coordinate the planning and implementation of their PSN initiative.
