The VCTF strategy will focus the efforts of multi-jurisdictional teams around the highest risk offenders, highest risk locations, and highest risk behaviors in Winnebago County.
The VCTF will be driven by collaboration and develop strategies, tactics and analysis designed to achieve continuous violent crime reduction by effectively utilizing existing federal, state and local law enforcement resources and coordinating where helpful and appropriate with other violent crime reduction efforts such as local prisoner reentry efforts and domestic violence reduction efforts.
The VCTF operations consist of the following areas: Investigative, Street Crimes, Intelligence, and Prosecutorial.
