Interested in Joining the National Public Safety Partnership?

The National Public Safety Partnership (PSP) is a Department of Justice (DOJ)-wide initiative that enables cities experiencing high rates of violent crime to partner with DOJ and to receive intensive, coordinated training and technical assistance (TTA) from DOJ to support and enhance public safety and community violence intervention strategies. 

PSP offers cities the opportunity to take advantage of:

  • Three years of formal engagement, coordinated through the Bureau of Justice Assistance, to support DOJ’s commitment to and partnerships with jurisdictions on building capacity, increasing collaboration, and sharing promising practices in a variety of public safety areas
  • Needs-based strategic assessments to support your city's violent crime prevention and community engagement efforts
  • Access to subject-matter expert consultation and customized TTA

If your city is interested in participating in PSP, applications are now being accepted through July 2, 2021. See the Apply for the National Public Safety Partnership blog post and the Office of Justice Programs' press release to learn more.
