Project Safe Neighborhoods: Involving Probation and Parole in Project Safe Neighborhoods
Contracting Agency: Bureau of Justice Assistance

APPA is collaborating with Project Safe Neighborhoods to research current practices and expertise in conducting searches, and the seizure of guns possessed illegally by persons under probation and parole supervision. The project includes development of training and ongoing support for practitioners in safely searching for and seizing such guns, relevant legal issues, and referral for prosecution of those who have committed gun crimes. The project provides information on related developments, and innovative and effective programs, by use of various media, including a web site.
