The U.S. Department of Justice Office of Inspector General just released this report which examines the intelligence and coordination activities of the National Gang Intelligence Center and the Gang Targeting, Enforcement, and Coordination Center. Additionally, the review “assesses the effectiveness of their contributions to the Department’s anti-gang initiatives.”
The review found that, although located in the same office, both NGIC and GangTECC are not collaborating or sharing information. The review also found that NGIC, perceived as an Federal Bureau of Investigation organization, does not effectively share intelligence with other law enforcement agencies, and that GangTECC has no budget, hindering its ability to carry out its mission. It recommends the development of a gang information management system.
