Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $150,000)

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 violent crime, gun-related crimes, and criminal gangs. In addition, the PSN National TTA Program provides comprehensive TTA that addresses a range of criminal justice subject areas 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, improve officer safety, and enhance jurisdictions’ illegal firearms interdiction, and prosecution efforts. This initiative is funded through the FY 2015 appropriation.

The Council of State Governments (CSG) will develop and deliver TTA to corrections and law enforcement professionals, allied agencies, and communities to address issues of gun crime and gang violence impacting supervised offenders, as well as provide practical, data-driven, and consensus-based strategies; increase public safety and strengthen communities; educate supervised offenders about current gun laws and anti-gang programs; assist local probation and parole officers in searching for and seizing guns held illegally; and promote reentry and anti-gang violence and gun crime programs.
