PUEBLO — A national gang task force is moving its headquarters to Pueblo.
The National Major Gang Task Force will be in Pueblo starting Feb. 1. It is now based in Indianapolis.
The task force was founded in 1993 and works nationally to provide intelligence and training about gangs, terrorists and other security threats to communities, law enforcement agencies, schools and prisons. The nonprofit organization consists largely of employees and experts from corrections departments.
Daryl A. Vigil, manager of the Colorado Department of Correction’s high-security bed unit, has been elected the task
force’s interim executive director.
