Violent Crime Task Force

In case of an Emergency dial 911

 

 

The Violent Crime Task Force is a multi-agency joint operation which is comprised of local, state, and federal law enforcement authorities. The objective of the task force is to target and focus on offenders who, commit violent crime. Prosecution of such offenders is sought through the federal court system which allows for stiffer penalties and firm federal sentencing guidelines.

The types of offenses normally handled by the task force are varied and include homicides, the sale and distribution of crack cocaine, the use of a firearm in the commission of a violent crime, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and operating a criminal enterprise. Cases are either "adopted" from a local agency or generated by task force members. Federal prosecutors of the United States District Attorney's Office assist in the investigation, preparation, and presentation of the cases in the United States District Courts.
