The 2010 Minnesota Legislature established the Violent Crimes Coordinating Council to provide guidance related to the investigation and prosecution of gang and drug crime. The council provides direction and oversight to the multijurisdictional Violent Crime Enforcement Teams (VCETs) located throughout the state.
The council’s primary duty is to “develop an overall strategy to ameliorate the harm caused to the public by gang and drug crime within the state of Minnesota."
