CHEYENNE, WYOMING — The Cheyenne Area Gang Enforcement team is putting an ear to the ground.

It has positively identified 109 gang members living in Laramie County and is in the process of researching 67 more.

The team of 11 Cheyenne police officers and one supervisor is spearheading the effort, along with various Laramie County organizations, to monitor and prevent gang-related activity in the area.
