GarCo sheriff creates group to combat gang activity
Concerns about possible gang-related activity have prompted creation of a new organization by Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario.
The Sheriff’s Department created its new Threat Assessment Group, which it calls “T.A.G.,” in response to growing gang-related activity within the county jail. The group’s mission was broadened because of concerns about such activity in area communities.
The group’s goal is to teach residents to recognize and report gang-related activity.
It plans to begin offering a series of presentations, starting with one at 7 p.m. Thursday at Riverside Middle School.
