This NIJ Conference Panel will explore the development and use of evidence-based policies, programs and technologies to improve effectiveness and efficiencies related to government. Through casual observation, practices and programs may appear to be effective, but under closer scrutiny the results may look much different.
Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN)
NIJ is seeking applications for funding a multi-site evaluation of the Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) program. PSN is a Department of Justice-sponsored initiative that involves cooperation of multiple criminal justice agencies and their partners working at the local level to develop and implement strategic responses to reduce gun crime. PSN also prioritizes the leadership of United States Attorney Offices in coordinating local efforts and carrying out federal prosecutions.
