The Anti-Gang Initiative and Project Safe Neighborhoods are strategic, coordinated approaches to reducing gun violence in America. The goals of the programs are to (1) increase the capacity of Project Safe Neighborhood task forces to design data-driven strategies that produce measurable decreases in firearms-related crime and (2) improve the long-term ability of federal, state, and local agencies to work together to understand, prosecute, and prevent firearms-related violent crime within their jurisdictions. This working paper reports on the FY2006 Anti-Gang Initiative for the U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California, who coordinates Project Safe Neighborhood programs in his district.
