Rep. Jerry McNerney introduces gang database bill

Ross Farrow (Lodi News-Sentinel) | March 7, 2011

Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Pleasanton, reintroduced legislation on Thursday to create a national gang activity database to allow law enforcement officials nationwide to track and share information about gang members and their activities.

“I sat down with members of the Tracy Police Department and local elected officials to discuss how I can be of assistance as they work to combat gang violence,” McNerney said in a news release. “The bill I wrote will help local law enforcement agencies address gang violence by creating a mechanism to share information nationally.”
