Justice Department Hosts Violent Crime Summit

On May 17, 2022, the Department of Justice kicked off a two-day national summit on reducing violence and strengthening communities. The summit convenes more than 500 prosecutors, federal and local law enforcement officials, and community partners working under the auspices of Project Safe Neighborhoods and the National Public Safety Partnership, two department-led initiatives that balance enforcement efforts with community engagement.

“Over the next two days, this summit will bring together our indispensable community and law enforcement partners from across the country to share best practices on disrupting violent crime and strengthen our coordinated efforts to keep our communities and our country safe,” said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland.
