Project Safe Neighborhoods

Project Safe Neighborhoods is nationally funded program through the US Department of Justice that is working to keep our communities safe by eliminating gun violence. Managed by the US Attorney's office, Project Safe Neighborhoods is a collaborative effort among federal, state and local law enforcement and community partners to create strategies to address the unique gun crime problem in Western North Carolina. Criminals who use guns are prosecuted under federal, state or local laws, depending on which jurisdiction can provide the most appropriate punishment.

Through effective marketing campaigns and community engagement activities, select neighborhoods in Mecklenburg County have seen a reduction in gun crime. As of December 2005, 125 arrests yielding 30 Federal convictions were made in a 2 year period.  These felons will serve an average of 20 years due to illegal possession of guns and drugs.

The project continues to build momentum through its leadership and strengthen community efforts with the assistance of the PSN Community Partners. For more information on Project Safe Neighborhoods and to learn how you can become involved, please call (704) 432-SAFE.
