To gather intelligence, educate staff and deter student involvement in gang activity. The G.I.U. has the ability to identify gang related trends, tattoos and graffiti that will aid in the suppression and prevention of gangs in our schools. When necessary the G.I.U. can expand to a multi-agency collaboration, taking advantage of resource multipliers and shared resources. The G.I.U. will play a crucial role in our defense against gangs and the threat they pose to our schools, property and the community we serve.
