Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $500,000)

As part of BJA’s 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 team 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 team the USA will implement the five design features of PSN: partnerships; strategic planning and research integration; training and technical assistance; outreach; and accountability, data analysis, and data-informed efforts to address specific gun crime and gang violence problems in that district.
