City of San Jose, Mayor’s Gang Prevention Task Force
The Mayor’s Gang Prevention Task Force (MGPTF) is made up of a Policy Team and a Technical Team. The Policy Team, chaired by the Mayor, provides direction and focus to the City's gang prevention and intervention efforts. The task force is comprised of the city, county and state; community based organizations; the San José Police Department; faith community; schools; and other community stakeholders. By bringing together these partners, the Task Force has been able to leverage a variety of available ”pro-social” community resources to combat the anti-social influences that youth receive from gangs.
