The purpose of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) is to reduce incidences of gun violence in Chicago’s most afflicted neighborhoods. We accomplish this objective through a multi-faceted approach that includes law enforcement, intervention and prevention strategies. PSN carries out these strategies through the development of partnerships amongst Federal, State and Local government as well as community and faith-based providers. Our comprehensive strategy is designed to prevent youth from committing a gun crime; intervene in the lives of those individuals struggling to re-integrate into society following release from prison; and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law those individuals who choose to threaten the safety of Chicago’s neighborhoods by committing a gun crime.
PSN Chicago welcomes your interest and involvement in making all neighborhoods safe. We encourage you to explore our website to learn more about how you can contribute to our successful partnerships.
