Project Safe Neighborhoods Results

On Friday July 10, 2009, the Lincoln Police Department conducted its fifty-fifth Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) grant detail.

Two areas of Lincoln have been identified as having a higher crime rate with a history of gun related crimes. The two identified areas, located within the Southwest Team, were the focus of the detail. Five Lincoln Police Officers were assigned to saturation patrol. The saturation portion instructs officers to make a high number of contacts of individuals within the target area, demonstrating a "zero tolerance" approach to issues in these neighborhoods. All officers were in uniform, operating marked police vehicles. Nebraska State Patrol Airwing provided helicopter air support for traffic stops and also assisted on several other calls for service including the search for a missing autistic child in the area of 70th & A Street.

Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) is a nationwide commitment to reduce gun and gang crime in America to make our streets and communities safer. Each local program has been contoured to fit the unique crime problem in that district-it is not a "one-size-fits-all" program applied uniformly all across America. Funding provided by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance.
