Project Safe Neighborhoods Being Implemented In Lee County

Project Safe Neighborhoods, which has been implemented in cities and counties across North Carolina and the United States, identifies repeat, violent offenders and gives them two options: get on the straight and narrow, or go to prison for a long time.

Project Safe Neighborhoods (“PSN”) is a comprehensive, strategic approach to reducing gun violence and promoting safe communities in this country. PSN combats gun violence by bringing together local, state, and federal law enforcement officials, prosecutors, and community leaders to implement a multi-faceted strategy to deter and punish gun violence.

PSN has created unprecedented coordination among law enforcement officials, with an emphasis on prevention, tactical intelligence gathering, more aggressive prosecutions, and enhanced accountability through performance measures.
