ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Rochester has been chosen by the Department of Justice to be part of the National Public Safety Partnership. As a PSP city, Rochester will receive support from the DOJ to reduce violent crime and increase community engagement.

“The U.S. Attorney’s Office has been working collaboratively with our federal, state and local partners to address the gun violence that has been plaguing the streets of Rochester,” stated U.S. Attorney Ross. “As a Public Safety Partnership city, Rochester will receive additional resources and support to enhance and expand these ongoing efforts.”
