Project Safe Neighborhoods Assistance Project (2003-2010)

American University, in partnership with the Bureau of Justice Assistance and in coordination with other DOJ-sponsored technical assistance and training providers, is available to provide short-term on-site consultant and material support to United States Attorney Offices and state and local law enforcement agencies in carrying out PSN initiatives.

Obtaining Assistance

Technical assistance services can be requested by letter or fax to the project's BJA Program Manager, James Chavis (see contact information below) -- better yet, contact either James Chavis or Joe Trotter, the American University project director by telephone prior to sending in a written technical assistance request to discuss the need and timetable and to determine if the prospective request is within the capability of the project to respond to on the timetable and in the manner desired. Possible alternative approaches to the need can also be discussed at that time, including the possibility of a joint approach with other PSN technical assistance providers. If on-site services are indicated, they will be designed and scheduled in collaboration with the requesting official.
