Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $500,000)
As part of BJAs Smart Suite, the Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), represents a strategic approach that brings more science into criminal justice operations by leveraging innovative applications of analysis, technology, and evidence-based practices with the goal of improving performance and effectiveness while containing costs. The program's effectiveness is based on the cooperation of local, state, and federal agencies engaged in a unified approach led by the U.S. Attorney (USA) in each district. The USA is responsible for establishing a collaborative PSN task force of federal, state, and local law enforcement and other community members to implement gang violence and gun crime enforcement, intervention and prevention initiatives within the district. Through the PSN task force, the USA will implement the five design features of PSNpartnerships, strategic planning, training, outreach, and accountabilityto address specific gun crime and gang violence problems in that district.
The Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services, acting as the fiscal agent for the Northern District of Ohio, will use grant funds to enhance the local PSN task force through the establishment of a Community Partnership (CP), to conduct crime analysis, provide technical support and education to the CP, and to conduct community outreach in the targeted communities. The goal of the project is to reduce homicides, non-fatal shootings, and gang and gun-related crime.
