Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) is a program to combat gun violence that is coordinated by U.S. Attorney's Offices throughout the country. In Maryland, PSN has been implemented in conjunction with two other programs, Maryland Exile and the Safe Streets Initiative. Both programs utilize call-in meetings to communicate with their respective target group. IGSR partnered with the U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Maryland, to evaluate the use of offender call-in meetings where high risk offenders are called-in and notified of the consequences they could face if the reoffense uses a gun. This report contains the results of the process evaluation of call-in meetings in five Maryland jurisdictions: the City of Annapolis, Anne Arundel County, Baltimore City, the City of Frederick, and Prince George's County.
