The Gang Unit is responsible for investigating crimes that are gang related or gang motivated such as shootings, serious assaults, and drug related crimes. Detectives also work to identify and document the identity of gang members in Murfreesboro.
In conjunction with the A.T.F, they have aided in the prosecution of gang members with weapons and/or drug charges. This unit also assists the Tennessee Office of Probation and Parole in making visitations to those gang members who are currently on probation or parole. The unit’s goal is to target a gang’s hierarchy and disrupt their activity locally and regionally.
