PSN Update

Beginning in the Fall of 2013 the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA) began including a column specific to Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) in its quarterly journal Perspectives. The column is devoted to issues pertinent to PSN including street gangs, gun violence, and interagency collaboration (e.g., police-probation partnerships). Manuscripts are welcome and may be submitted to kduley@csg.org and perspectives@csg.org. Papers may be generally 1000-1500 words in length and follow the submission guidelines of the Perspectives journal. Articles published to date appear below.
