OJJDP Observes National Gang Violence Prevention Week

“President Trump issued a proclamation recognizing September 15 to 21, 2019, as National Gang Violence Prevention Week. This weeklong observance is dedicated to combating gang violence in communities nationwide. The proclamation supports the Department of Justice’s work with state, local, and tribal law enforcement partners to implement Project Safe Neighborhoods, a data-driven, comprehensive violent crime reduction program. OJJDP works to reduce gang violence through research and evaluation, training and technical assistance, demonstration programs and the National Gang Center, co-funded with the Bureau of Justice Assistance.” Take a look at OJJDP’s overview page.
