Welcome to the City of San José's new digital front door!

MGPTF Structure

The Task Force is made up of two components: a Policy Team that develops strategic direction for the task force, and a Technical Team which carries out the task force’s anti-gang programs and efforts. Read more about these two teams below.

 

Policy Team

The Policy Team is co-chaired by the mayor and police chief. The team consists of government department heads and senior officials, school district leaders, local businesses, representatives from community-based organizations, and neighborhood leaders. This team advises the mayor on City policies designed to combat gang violence and develops strategies for the task force’s own gang prevention and intervention efforts.

Policy Team meetings are open to the public and include time on the agenda for input from citizens and partner organizations.

The Policy Team also operates 3 subcommittees
  • Community Engagement Subcommittee: This subcommittee focuses on disseminating crucial information and resources to the community.
  • Interagency Collaboration Subcommittee: This subcommittee is tasked with building strong relationships with our partner agencies and leveraging our limited resources.
  • Technical Team Subcommittee: This subcommittee serves as a liaison between the Policy Team and Technical Team members working in the community.

Community Engagement Subcommittee meetings and Interagency Collaboration Subcommittee meetings are open to the public. View Subcommittee Meeting Agendas.

 

Technical Team

The Technical Team is comprised of Parks, Recreation & Neighborhood Services staff, police officers, school officials, and direct-service organizations who provide prevention and intervention services in the community to curb gang violence. The team is “charged with the responsibility of assuring the development of gang prevention, intervention, and suppression programs that work effectively in the neighborhoods.” These members also utilize their expertise to provide the Policy Team with updates on the current gang climate and the effectiveness of the Task Force’s efforts.
