About OCGS

The Organized Crime and Gang Section (OCGS) within the Criminal Division was established in late 2010 as a merger of the (former) Organized Crime and Racketeering Section (OCRS), Gang Unit, and the National Gang Targeting, Enforcement & Coordination Center (GangTECC).  The new, combined OCGS pursues a multi-faceted approach to combating all forms of organized crime targets.

This site is designed to provide information about OCGS and its activities, such as prosecutions, investigative support, case coordination/targeting, training, and policy and legislation assistance.   We welcome your comments, questions, or suggestions.
