U.S. Department Of Justice

The United States Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina, working through her Project Safe Neighborhoods Coordinator, enlists the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, and other officials as a task force. The representatives of the Charlotte PSN Task Force have worked hard to tailor the Charlotte PSN strategy to fit the unique gun crime problem in Charlotte’s PSN site, known as “The Parkwood Corridor.” Criminals who use guns are prosecuted under federal, state, or local laws, depending on which jurisdiction can provide the most appropriate punishment. The PSN Coordinator engages in deterrence and prevention efforts through community outreach and media campaigns and ensures that law enforcement and prosecutors have the training necessary to make the program work. The role of the Western District’s PSN Coordinator, Assistant U.S. Attorney Bob Gleason, is to help streamline communication among the PSN task force members, the various PSN partners, lead in the implementation of the PSN community outreach projects, and most importantly, to prosecute firearms violations taking place in the Charlotte PSN site.
