Sheriff Hosts Law Enforcement Forum on Gang Intelligence

DSCN1811Hundreds of law enforcement experts from across the nation gathered at the Upsky Long Island Hotel in Hauppauge on Thursday, October 20th for the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office’s 10th Annual Gang Intelligence Seminar. Sheriff Vincent F. DeMarco organizes the event each year in conjunction with the Middle Atlantic-Great Lakes Organized Crime Law Enforcement Network.
The County Sheriff has made partnering with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies a priority of his Administration and he says the Annual Gang Intelligence Seminar gives officials the opportunity to share information on current trends and improve collaboration. Highlights of this year’s event focused on security in the Brentwood School District in the wake of the high profile murders of two students, and others, by suspected gang members, as well as the scope of the gang problem in Long Island’s suburbs.
DeMarco stated, “Coordination and intelligence sharing are keys to combatting gangs. Gangs recognize no boundaries, and neither should we in law enforcement. Our willingness and ability to share gang-related investigative leads is one of the most effective ways we can work together to defeat street gangs, and this annual conference gives us the opportunity to strengthen our networks and build relationships.”
