Atlanta, GA - Today Governor Brian P. Kemp announced that the Georgia Criminal Street Gang Database (GCSGD) is now operational, thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI), Department of Community Supervision, (DCS), and Department of Corrections (GDC). The database will serve as a statewide information bank on criminal street gangs, members, associates, and activities.
“Criminal street gangs are plaguing neighborhoods across Georgia. Thanks to the leadership of GBI Director Vic Reynolds and our partners at DCS and GDC, this database will serve as a vital tool for law enforcement to hold violent criminals accountable and keep Georgia families safe," said Governor Kemp.
“We are proud of this collaborative effort to provide a repository on gangs around the state," said GBI Director Vic Reynolds. "Gangs don’t abide by city or county boundaries. With this statewide database operational, law enforcement across jurisdictional lines will be able to work together more efficiently and effectively to tie cases together to make Georgia safer.”
