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

Investigation Discovery is channel 73 on Suddenlink and channel 285 on DirecTV.

Wagoner County sheriff’s deputies and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation responded to the disappearance of 18-year-old Jarret Clark in May of 2005, the release says, and he was last known to be camping with others in the Wahoo Bay area of Fort Gibson Lake in Wagoner County. Three days later, Clark’s body was discovered in Wahoo Bay. 

Two grand juries were convened, and both failed to indict the parties responsible, the release says, and the case went cold.

In April of 2011, Wagoner County sheriff’s investigators reopened the case, and after more than two years of investigating,
