Project CeaseFire

Project CeaseFire is administered by the Office of United States Attorney, District of South Carolina as part of the national effort known as Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN). PSN is a nationwide commitment to reduce gun and gang crime in America by networking existing local programs that target gun and gun crime and providing these programs with additional tools necessary to be successful. Since its inception in 2001, approximately $2 billion has been committed to this initiative. This funding is being used to hire new federal and state prosecutors, support investigators, provide training, distribute gun lock safety kits, deter juvenile gun crime, and develop and promote community outreach efforts as well as to support other gun and gang violence reduction strategies. The SAC received funding to participate as the Research Partner to Project CeaseFire from 2002 through 2012, providing statistical support, research and evaluation services and technical assistance. Any reports, publications or other information concerning Project CeaseFire are released only through Stacey Haynes, the Assistant United States Attorney coordinating Project CeaseFire.   She can be contacted at
