PROJECT SAFE NEIGHBORHOODS 

           U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS 

 

What is Project Safe Neighborhoods?

 

Project Safe Neighborhoods is a nationwide program committed to reducing gun violence and gang related activities by networking existing local programs that target gun crime and providing these programs with additional tools necessary to be successful.

 

Sponsored by the Department of Justice, the program takes a hard line against gun criminals through every available means in an effort to make our streets and communities safer.

           

The offensive is led by the U.S. Attorney in each of the 94 federal judicial districts across America. Project funding is used to hire new federal and state prosecutors, support investigators, provide training, distribute gun lock safety kits, deter juvenile gun crime, and develop and promote community outreach efforts and to support other gun violence reduction strategies.

 

Every local PSN site has been contoured to fit the unique gun crime problem in that district, it is not a “one-size-fits-all” program applied uniformly all across America.

 

Each U.S. Attorney has convened law enforcement participants in his or her community, identified the most pressing crime problems, and worked to attack those problems through such means as aggressive prosecution and the use of newly developed gun-intelligence-gathering systems.
