Byrne JAG funds in Minnesota support two Multi-jurisdictional Violent Crime Enforcement Teams (VCET) that target drug distribution networks, firearm crimes, violent gang activity and other serious criminal activity. The goal of these teams is to increase the identification and arrest of high-risk offenders and enhance the amount of law enforcement expertise available statewide for complex investigations. These teams cover 11 cities, five counties and three reservations.
