Gang Intelligence Squad
The Gang Intelligence Squad works in conjunction with local, state and federal agencies to collect and disseminate intelligence and data on individuals and groups involved in gang activity, violent crime and drug trafficking. Detectives identify members of gangs and crews and work to dismantle these organized criminal groups through actionable intelligence, target enforcement and coordinated prosecution. In addition, detectives assist in conducting risk for retaliations to deter further retaliatory violence following an event.
If you or someone you know is engaged in an organized criminal group or gang there are resources available and organizations ready to provide assistance. Below is a list of available resources.
