Annual Report due Nov. 1 (Executive Order 01.01.2017.30).

In December 2017, the Governor's Council on Gangs and Violent Criminal Networks was authorized by the Governor (Executive Order 01.01.2017.30).

Meeting quarterly, the Council provided leadership, policy oversight, and the coordination of operational strategies to collect and share data related to violence and victimization.

To secure the information necessary to prosecute gang-related and racketeer-influenced and corrupt organizations, the Council supported and assisted programs and entities that identify, disrupt, and dismantle gangs and violent criminal networks. It did this through collaboration and comprehensive data sharing, both locally and statewide. Data collected was used to conduct criminal investigations, and for the case management of criminals. Such data only pertained to crime, criminals, or criminal activity; and the law enforcement related to them.

The Council last met in 2019.
