The Multi-Jurisdictional Violent Crime and Gang Task Force conducted operations in the City of Jackson and Madison County on the night of February 1 into the early morning hours of February 2, 2013.
Officers participating in the operations were from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Jackson Police Department, Madison County Sherriff’s Office, Chester County Sherriff’s Office, Henderson Police Department, Community Corrections, U.S. Marshals, Metro-Narcotics, and U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement.

The Multi-Jurisdictional Violent Crime and Gang Task Force is comprised of local, state, and federal agencies that are responsible for state and federal law enforcement in the 26th and 28th Judicial Districts and the Western District of Tennessee. The Task Force provides a vital communication conduit between multiple agencies and jurisdictions which enables those agencies to operate more effectively. Due to the combined efforts of multiple agencies working together, assets and manpower are increased in order to address violent crime and gang activity throughout West Tennessee.
This was the fifth operation the Task Force has conducted in the 26th and 28th Judicial Districts since October 2012. Previous operations have been done in Madison, Gibson, Crockett, and Chester Counties.
These types of enforcement operations will continue to be conducted throughout West Tennessee, specifically in the 26th and 28th Judicial Districts, as the law enforcement community works together to combat violent crime and gang activity.
