The U.S. Department of Justice Announces 10 New National Public Safety Partnership Sites for 2019

On June 3, 2019, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced the addition of 10 counties and cities as National Public Safety Partnership (PSP) sites in continuation of the department’s commitment to reducing violent crime nationwide. PSP provides a framework for federal assistance to state, local, and tribal law enforcement officials and prosecutors in combating violent crime, especially gun crime, drug trafficking, and gang violence. To date, more than 30 cities have joined PSP to work with several DOJ components – including the Office of Justice Programs; Office on Violence Against Women; Office of Community Oriented Policing Services; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; Federal Bureau of Investigation; U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration; and U.S. Marshals Service – to develop evidence-based, data-driven solutions to meet their unique violent crime challenges.

The 10 new PSP sites are:

  • Anniston, Alabama;
  • Oxford, Alabama;
  • Anchorage, Alaska;
  • Davenport, Iowa;
  • Wichita, Kansas;
  • Baton Rouge, Louisiana;
  • Baltimore, Maryland;
  • Cleveland, Ohio;
  • Amarillo, Texas; and
  • Harris County, Texas.
