PROJECT SAFE NEIGHBORHOODS
Program to Reduce Gun Violence in the
Eastern District of North Carolina
Project Safe Neighborhoods: America's Network Against Gun Violence is President Bush's new federal initiative to reduce gun violence in America. The initiative includes partnerships among federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies; strategic planning incorporating such technologies as crime mapping, gun tracing, and ballistic analysis; training that brings together federal, state, and local officials to build effective teams; outreach to communities; and accountability for impact on community safety.
Under the leadership of the United States Attorney,
ninePSN sites have been developed in the Eastern District of North Carolina.
Each site is comprised of a partnership between local, state and federal
law enforcement agencies as well as community resource providers. In one
site, in Cumberland County, there is a business partnership as well. These
PSN sites are led by local agents and residents who have a vested interest
in their communities and a desire to have those communities be the safest
most desirable place to live in this district. Each site has adopted a
logo and program name so that whenever you see that logo it is identified
as a PSN supported and funded initiative.
