    The purpose of the Violent Crime Enforcement Teams (VCET) Program is to provide funding and guidance for the operation of multijurisdictional task forces that address narcotics, gang and related violent crime. The goal is to increase the identification and arrest of serious law violators and enhance the amount of law enforcement expertise available statewide for complex investigations that cross jurisdictional boundaries. 

    Multijurisdictional approaches enhance resource sharing, interagency coordination and information exchange in narcotics, gang and other violent crime investigations. This approach is intended to target drug distribution networks, firearm crimes, violent gang activity and related serious criminal activity beyond the investigative resources of individual agencies.  

    History of Funding

    In 2017 there are 21 VCET grants supported with $3,500,000 state funds grant funds and $585,000 in federal JAG funds.
