BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — For the first time, law enforcement officials from across the state met in Baton Rouge to try and figure out ways to combat growing gang problems.
The Gang Task Force was created this session and brings together different agencies to try and formulate a uniform plan.
Representative Jared Brosset tells us the idea is to educate, prevent and mentor.
The task force meets again in October, and they plan on presenting their ideas to lawmakers by next year.
