This program furthers the Department’s mission by enhancing efforts to reduce violent crime associated with gun violence and gang activity, by assisting communities struggling with drug abuse, and by supporting law enforcement agencies.
This program focuses on high crime communities with concentrated distress and hot spots of crime and directly supports the Department’s priorities to reduce violent crime (sometimes associated with gang activity), assist communities struggling with drug abuse, and support law enforcement officers by integrating officers and enforcement strategies into community-based crime reduction efforts.

Engage community stakeholders in trust building with law enforcement and other partners.
