Police agencies get funds to support gang center

Nathan Gonzalez (The Arizona Republic) | Sept. 21, 2010

The East Valley’s police agencies were awarded $248,000 in state funding directed toward the East Valley Gang and Criminal Information Fusion Center.

The center serves as an information- and intelligence-sharing network supported by manpower and funding from police agencies in Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, Tempe, Scottsdale and the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.

// “(The center) allows the unique opportunity to bring law-enforcement intelligence together in one place so they can track repetitive crimes (and) career criminals, who are engaged in the many jurisdictions in the East Valley,” Attorney General Terry Goddard said during a press conference Monday.

The funding was part of a 2004 settlement with the El Paso Corp., in which the state alleged the company manipulated the state’s supply of natural gas to inflate costs, according to Goddard’s office.

“With offshoots of the Mexican cartels trying to secure a stronger hold in Arizona, law enforcement must be more vigilant against gang activity than ever,” Goddard said of the center.
