National Police Association Podcast 4: Cops under fire and Project Safe Neighborhoods.


01:42 "The five-day operation targeting fugitives wanted for violent criminal offenses in Creek County was finalized this week. 'Today, 34 violent offenders have been apprehended as a result of Operation Fallback,' said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores."

04:11 "Heuser-Whitaker and his nine co-conspirators worked in at least six-man teams for each robbery, which included inside and outside look-outs, getaway drivers, and two gunmen. The robbery crew used police scanners to monitor law enforcement activity and earpieces to communicate with one another."

05:41 "Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime."

08:59 "One of the greatest concerns is the increasing number of privately made weapons that do not carry serial numbers and are sold illegally, said Jennifer Cicolani, the assistant agent in charge of the San Francisco division of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives."

11:41 "Through Project Safe Neighborhoods we use data driven approaches to focus prosecution resources and investigation resources on the most violent. But that's not all we do. We also engage the probation office, social agencies, churches, charities so that if there are those that are moving in that direction or on the precipice of that activity, we give them a hard talking to and say, 'Hey you're on our radar screen,' Martin said."



In this episode of the National Police Association Podcast, police go on the offensive to enforce Project Safe Neighborhoods and its affiliated operations, the Justice Department's core initiative to reduce violent crime from all over the country. Members of notorious gangs like the Bloods and Hell's Angels have been arrested on various charges involving guns and drugs.
