Project Safe Childhood (PSC) is a Department of Justice initiative launched in 2006 that aims to combat the proliferation of technology-facilitated sexual exploitation crimes against children. The threat of sexual predators soliciting children for physical sexual contact is well-known and serious; the danger of perpetrators who produce, distribute, and possess child pornography is equally dramatic and disturbing.
Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) is a nationwide commitment to reduce gun and gang crime in America by networking existing local programs that target these issues and by providing these programs with additional tools necessary to be successful. Project Guardian is a nationwide federal initiative designed to reduce gun violence and enforce federal firearms laws across the country by investigating, prosecuting, and preventing gun crimes; it complements PSN.
Victims of crime may experience feelings of confusion, frustration, fear and anger. The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of California and the Victim Witness Unit is dedicated to making sure that victims of federal crimes and their family members are treated with compassion, fairness and respect.
