Project Safe Neighborhoods

The U.S. Attorney’s Office is partnering with federal, state, and local law enforcement to specifically identify criminals responsible for significant violent crime in the Western District of Missouri. A centerpiece of this effort is Project Safe Neighborhoods, a program that brings together all levels of law enforcement to reduce violent crime and make neighborhoods safer for everyone.

Project Safe Neighborhoods is an evidence-based program that identifies the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develops comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, Project Safe Neighborhoods focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.

Public Service Video

The Project Safe Neighborhoods Task Force released a public service video in May 2021 to bring attention to combating violent crime. The public service video emphasizes that, among 751 people who have been murdered in Kansas City, Missouri, in the prior five years, 28 victims have been children.

The public service video can be viewed online or downloaded at:
