Public Safety Clearinghouse

Strategic Solutions to Increase Public Safety


The Public Safety Clearinghouse is a public online tool that serves as a one-stop shop for violence reduction and public safety resources from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) program components and other federal entities. The Clearinghouse was developed as part of the National Public Safety Partnership (PSP) and was officially launched in 2017 to provide a single point of access to DOJ violence reduction and public safety resources for the criminal justice field.

The Clearinghouse functions as an online catalog for users to browse, search, and ultimately build a custom toolkit of resources, that can be downloaded in one package and shared with others for future access.

The Clearinghouse has 19 topic areas and contains hundreds of trainings, technical assistance opportunities, publications, lessons learned, webinars, programs and practices, and other resources publicly available to any jurisdiction in the criminal justice field. Each topic has question-style sub-filters to allow the user to refine the resource list further.

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.
