The Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) Program is designed to provide TTA resources that are critical to communities’ efforts to reduce gun crime and gang violence. In addition, the PSN National TTA Program provides comprehensive TTA that addresses a range of matters related to gun crime and gang violence issues impacting communities. PSN TTA Program is designed to provide TTA nationwide to state and local law enforcement and communities to reduce gun crime and gang violence, and enhance jurisdictions’ illegal firearms interdiction and prosecution efforts. This initiative is funded through the FY 2015 appropriation.

The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) will provide TTA to help communities engage and empower residents to develop and implement gun crime and gang violence reduction strategies as well as consulting services, technical assistance, and training to law enforcement and criminal justice professionals in the areas of gun crime and gang violence, prevention, intervention, and community mobilization.
