Abstract: One of the central elements of PSN is the requirement that PSN task forces collect data on outcome measures related to the level of firearms violence in each judicial district and information on the strategies used to combat that gun violence. This information is essential if we are strategically to target our financial resources for maximum impact, and is a necessary element in assessing success or failure and providing the information required to make mid-course corrections in our local programs. To accomplish the data collection at the local level, the Bureau of Justice Assistance has funded a research partner to work with each of the 94 districts.1 The grant program provided $150,000 to a researcher in each district to be spent over three years. The data collected by these researchers has allowed for program assessment at the local level, but also has provided the opportunity to gauge the results of the initiative across the country. Understanding the gun violence problem throughout the country will allow the Department to identify trends and adapt the program at a national level to meet the needs of the districts. Additionally, by collecting both outcome and intervention measures, the Department can identify programs that demonstrate success in reducing targeted gun crime. This information is essential to evaluating the program and providing feedback at the national level that can inform management decisions. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond/reply: It is estimated that no more than 93 respondents will apply twice a year. Each application takes approximately 60 minutes to complete. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The total hour burden to complete the applications is 186. (93 respondents × 1 hour per respondent × 2 responses per year = 186 burden hours). If additional information is required contact: Lynn Bryant, Department Clearance Officer, United States Department of Justice, Policy and Planning Staff, Justice Management Division, 601 D Street, NW., Suite 1600, Washington, DC 20530. 1 While there are 94 judicial districts, there are only 93 United States Attorneys and accordingly 93 research partners. The Northern Mariana Islands and Guam share one research partner. E:\FR\FM\05DEN1.SGM 05DEN1
