Wichita police team with FBI to fight gangs

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The FBI has joined with Wichita police in a bid to target Wichita’s most violent gang members.

Under the new partnership, an FBI agent works with a detective and officer from the Wichita Police Department’s gang unit to review unsolved homicides and build cases against gang members who have a history of violence.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1qGSxTO ) the team also works with the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Under the crackdown, even crime victims who are found with guns and are convicted felons will face prosecution.
