    Criminal STreet Gangs for Corrections

    This class is sponsored by MCTC.  To view the Class Flyer and to register for the class,


    This unique gang training illustrates the activities of incarcerated criminal street gang members and their terrorist and transnational organized crime partnerships. This course In turn, students who attend this class will be able to impact upon the influence of TCO and trafficking networks within the U.S. This includes layered, coordinated approaches that disrupt the operations of TCOs, limit their access to funding, reduce their assets, and raise their costs of doing business. This class will increase intergovernmental cooperation to build capacity of agencies to counter the narcotics threats and enhance or develop cooperative mechanisms with law enforcement agencies. It will maximize both the impact and efficiency of DoD contributions to combating drug trafficking and TCO that pose a national security threat.

KNOA: To promote the cooperation, education and exchange of information among all Law Enforcement Agencies involved in the enforcement of controlled substance laws.
