Abstract: The National Public Safety Partnership (PSP) was established in June 2017 under the direction of Executive Order on a Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety, which emphasizes the role of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) in combating violent crime. PSP provides an innovative framework for DOJ to enhance its support of state, tribal, and local law enforcement officers and prosecutors in the investigation, prosecution, and deterrence of violent crime, especially crime related to gun violence, gangs, and drug trafficking. This approach serves as a platform for DOJ to directly engage with cities to identify and prioritize resources that will help local communities address their violent crime crises. PSP builds on lessons learned from a pilot concept known as the Violence Reduction Network (VRN) and serves as a DOJ-wide program that enables cities to consult with and receive coordinated training and technical assistance and an array of resources from DOJ to enhance local violence reduction strategies. PSP comprises two distinct levels of engagement: Diagnostic and Operations. These two complementary levels of engagement are offered based on the needs of the jurisdiction. This model enables DOJ to provide American cities of different sizes and diverse needs with data-driven, evidence-based strategies tailored to the unique local needs of participating cities to address serious violent crime challenges tailored to their unique local needs. PSP’s strategic focus demonstrates DOJ’s commitment to combating violent crime and supports his pledge to vigorously, effectively, and immediately confront the crime that endangers the American people.
