- Mobilize key stakeholders in the community to collaborate and cooperate in local strategy planning and implementation.
- Network and coordinate regular communication among its stakeholders.
- Share community resource information and assess best practices.
- Work to improve the collection and sharing of gang intelligence data among the law enforcement agencies within regions and around the state.
- Oversee the collection of data necessary to measure progress in the strategy.
- Act as a liaison between local community components and the Office of the Attorney General and the Coordinating Council on Criminal Gang Reduction Strategies in the exchange of information related to the Gang Reduction Strategy.
