The Specialized Investigations Division's Gang Unit combats gang related crime through active suppression, investigation, and intelligence gathering. Information is collected by various means to determine if these individuals or groups might be a threat to Nashville. The Gang Unit investigates crimes that are reported as gang related (such as assault, vandalism, narcotic related, etc.).
The Gang Unit also has the responsibility for distributing analyzed data on gang matters and focusing on criminal violations committed by criminal gangs. The Gang Unit also shares this information and works with other agencies including the FBI, DEA, ATF, ICE, and other law enforcement agencies.
If you have gang information to report, please call the Specialized Investigations Division at 615-782-3301.
