Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $3,322,673)

The National Public Safety Partnership (PSP or the “Partnership”), administered by BJA, is designed to enhance the capacity of state, tribal, and local law enforcement and prosecutors in jurisdictions experiencing a precipitous increase in violent crime to enhance public safety by introducing a new framework of federal/local collaboration. For participating sites, it is a three-year engagement that provides expedited delivery of DOJ resources and coordinated training and technical assistance (TTA) in seven core areas: illegal gun violence, federal partnerships, crime analysis, technology, criminal justice collaboration, investigations, and community engagement.

PSP augments the Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) program, which is focused on violent crime. PSP TTA providers must demonstrate a capacity to coordinate proactively with the PSN National TTA providers in order to enhance collaboration, knowledge sharing, and the application of available resources to reduce violent crime.
