To create a 6 person surge team to analyze, investigate and engage gang and/or organized crime as well as provide over-watch for potential terrorist activities. These objectives will create more local intelligence to be shared with other law enforcement entities while providing security to our community takes while gathering intelligence to disrupt the crimes listed above.
