Crackdown On MS-13: New Gang Prevention Unit Targets 10 High-Risk Suffolk County Schools

In an effort to amp up efforts to tackle escalating gang violence, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday the deployment of a new gang violence prevention unit, targeting 10 high-risk schools in Suffolk County.

The gang violence prevention unit will consist of 10 New York State troopers, who will be deployed to the “high-risk” schools that serve as “ground zero” for gang recruitment and activity, Cuomo said.

The 10 schools are reportedly in six targeted districts: Brentwood, Central Islip, Huntington, Longwood, South Country Central and Wyandanch.

The goal, the governor said, is to put the brakes on deadly gang activity before young people even get recruited; the troopers will also seek to identify early warning signs of any potential gang activity in schools.

At least one school district wasn’t happy about the plan.

“At no point did any state official or otherwise reach out and ask what we need or don’t need,” Huntington School

“I’ve been on TV for 25 years, since I was 18. Now, as I’m approaching 47, this is where I want to be and where I need to be. I’m just in the happiest place that I’ve been.”
