The U.S. Attorney's Office of the Northern District of New York is involved in a number of programs and projects in our community. Some of our major efforts are listed below.
The Law Enforcement Coordinator sponsors and co-sponsors training seminars for federal, state and local law enforcement agencies addressing a variety of subjects.
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 gun and gun crime and providing these programs with additional tools necessary to be successful.
Victims of crime may experience feelings of confusion, frustration, fear and anger. The United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of New York 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.
