PSN is a federal program established in fiscal year 2001 to reduce gun-related violence and gang activity. The Southern District of Indiana’s PSN initiative, led by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, began in 2003 and has focused mainly on Marion County and surrounding communities. This report summarizes the activities of four agencies (three law enforcement and one Prosecuting Attorney’s Office) receiving seven PSN subgrants in 2009. Funded projects focused on enhancing intelligence gathering and surveillance operations and staffing specialized units.

The 2009 PSN programs were characterized by extensive collaborations, heavy investments in technology, and material progress towards the overarching PSN goal of reducing gun-related violence and gang activity.
