Safe Streets Task Forces I
November 19, 2010
The FBI’s Safe Streets program is designed to eliminate threats and violence in communities across the country.
Ms. Ballew: The FBI’s Safe Streets program is designed to eliminate threats and violence in communities across the country.
Mr. Brunner: “There’s the Violent Gang Safe Streets Task Forces, of which there are 167. There’s the Violent Crime Safe Streets Task Forces, of which there are 43. And then there are the Safe Trails, of which there are 19, on our Indian reservations.”
Ms. Ballew: Scott Brunner, chief of the Safe Streets and Gang Unit, says the Bureau partners with state, local, and other federal law enforcement to target violent criminals, gangs, and criminal enterprises.
Mr. Brunner: “The Violent Gangs (Task Forces) are specifically targeting violent gangs in the cities and in the rural communities around the country. Our Violent Crime Task Forces target kidnappings, extortions, armored car robberies…”
Ms. Ballew: The third type of task force…
Mr. Brunner: “The Safe Trails work in coordination with the local police on the Indian reservations, some targeting gang problems, some drug problems, whatever type of violent crime issues there might be on the Indian country.”
Ms. Ballew: The community’s help is important in solving some of the crime problems in the local areas. I’m Denise Ballew of the Bureau, and that’s what’s happening at the “FBI, This Week.”
