2) 42 Division – Project Trident
42 Division has seen firearms used regularly in robberies and violence against persons, and has seen that gang activity and organized crime are directly linked to firearm possession and use. Besides, illegal gaming houses have direct links to organized crime groups. This makes gaming houses and target for violence from rival organizations and often results in the operators being armed with firearms and other weapons to protect their interests.
Community Outreach with Crime and safety Crime Prevention Teams:
The Education and Building Partnerships portion of addressing gun violence in 42 Division will include officers working from 14:00 hours until 18:00 hours, in a uniformed capacity, on Fridays and Saturdays through the months of November and December.
Gaming houses & illegal liquor sales and RIDE spot checks
42 MCU and CRU officers executed several search warrants throughout the Division, prior, during and after Project Trident.
