Project Safe Neighborhoods

Project Safe Neighborhoods is a national gun violence reduction initiative that encourages federal, state and local law enforcement and community leaders to work togther to reduce gun crime. In Oregon, the program specifically targets gang-related gun violence, crimes of domestic violence in which a firearm is involved, and armed career criminals – those that have 3 violent felony convictions, such as sex abuse, arson, assault, robbery or murder.

Through community involvement, strict enforcement of firearm laws, and rigorous prosecution of offenders, Project Safe Neighborhoods is spreading the message that gun violence is not tolerated in Oregon.
