Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN)
Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) is a federal program led by the US Attorney’s Office in the 94 districts funded by the US Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (USDOJ/BJA). PSN is designed to create and foster safer neighborhoods in each USAO district. Each district is required to establish a PSN Task Force to foster partnerships among local, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies-and the communities they serve. To participate in a PSN Task Force, contact the US Attorney’s Office in your district. Funding is available to local agencies through the PSN fiscal agent. Find your district here.
