National Public Safety Partnership


Coordinated by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the U.S. Department of Justice's (DOJ's) National Public Safety Partnership (PSP) was launched to help communities suffering from serious violent crime problems to build up their capacity to fight crime.


On October 6, 2021, the Department of Justice announced the addition of 10 new PSP sites that will work to reduce violence in areas with elevated crime rates. This brings the total number of jurisdictions that participate in PSP to 50. 

Read the press release and visit the PSP Sites page to learn more about the sites.
