The Garret Mountain Violent Crimes/Fugitive Safe Streets Task Force (GMTF) in Northern New Jersey exemplifies the effectiveness of SSTF operations.
The development of a Safe Streets task force should include the expertise and jurisdiction of appropriate Federal agencies in addition to the FBI.
Today's Safe Streets task forces (SSTFs) were modeled on the six successful prototype task forces that have operated in select FBI field offices since 1989.
A significant share of these totals are directly attributable to the work of the Safe Streets task forces.
Training is an essential element for any operation, and in this regard, the Safe Streets task forces are no different.
The FBI contributes the majority of logistical support for the Safe Streets task forces.
