“We will make certain that this Department is both tough and smart on crime, and that our decisions are economically sound. This means working closely with state, local and tribal partners. It also means broadening our support for effective crime prevention, intervention, enforcement, and re-entry strategies...Our work must expand beyond arrests and prosecutions. Although PSN has helped to secure many important convictions, it has also shown that we can’t simply arrest our way out of the problem of violent crime.”
— United States Attorney General Eric Holder
