The Project for Public Safety and Justice
The Project for Public Safety and Justice (PPSJ) at the University of Illinois Springfield is successor to the Center for Public Safety and Justice (CPSJ) at the University of Illinois Chicago. CPSJ was founded in 1997 as one of the original Regional Community Policing Institutes created through the establishment of the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services within the U.S. Department of Justice. The original charge of CPSJ was to expand the understanding and application of community policing and problem-solving techniques used by law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve. Continuing the work of the CPSJ, the PPSJ honors its origins in community policing through its portfolio of training, services and research projects to further this mission. For more than two decades its staff has brought unique insight into the culture of law enforcement, including operations and organizational structure. PPSJ fosters organizational change and transformation through quality training, technical assistance, and the use of innovative approaches to problem-solving to create safe and livable communities.
