"Creating a safe environment and improving the quality of life in our neighborhoods by reducing gang activity"
As part of our mission to partner with the community, reduce crime, create a safe environment, and enhance quality of life, the Green Bay Police Department has formed a Gang Task Force (GTF). The Gang Task Force is coordinated by Lt. Gary Richgels and Lt. Ben Allen. Officers involved in the GTF receive specialized training in identifying gang behaviors, symbols, and graffiti.
In addition to performing patrol duties, and following up on gang related incidents, members are available to give educational presentations to civic groups and government entities on various gang prevention and identification topics.
If you would like to contact the GTF for a NON EMERGENCY SITUATION, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (920) 448-3531. If you are observing a crime in progress, or other emergency, dial 911.

Their personal belongings are frequently covered with graffiti and bear the gang symbols or logos and member’s street name. Look for and don’t ignore these warning signs:
