The National Public Safety Partnership (PSP) was established by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to provide an innovative framework to enhance federal support of state, local, and tribal law enforcement and prosecution authorities in enhancing public safety.
PSP began as a pilot program, the Violence Reduction Network, in 2014 and is designed to promote interagency coordination by leveraging specialized law enforcement expertise with dedicated prosecutorial resources to promote public and community safety.
PSP serves as a DOJ-wide program that enables participating sites to consult with and receive expedited, coordinated training and technical assistance (TTA) and an array of resources from DOJ to enhance local public safety strategies. This model enables DOJ to provide jurisdictions of different sizes and diverse needs with data-driven, evidence-based strategies tailored to the unique local needs of participating cities to build their capacities to address violent crime challenges. PSP has engaged with more than 40 sites since the program’s inception.
DOJ is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights, increases access to justice, supports crime victims, protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community. The PSP initiative supports and advances DOJ’s principles in all of its activities.

The Public Safety Clearinghouse serves as a one-stop shop for public safety-related resources. The Clearinghouse provides the opportunity for users to build a custom “toolkit” based on specific areas of need, types of resources, agency size, and more. The Clearinghouse includes model programs, best practices and strategies, trainings, technical assistance, webinars, podcasts, publications, lessons learned, peer exchange resources, and more. PSP invites you to visit the Clearinghouse to explore strategies and resources that may be useful in your violence reduction efforts.Public Safety Clearinghouse
