Public Affairs Director Jon Michaels (since 1977) talks with Omaha Police Captain Ken Kanger about how Omaha has been able to deconstruct gang violence. Omaha is just 160 miles south of Sioux Falls on I-29. Captain Kanger is in charge of Omaha’s Criminal Investigation Bureau, Special Operations Inspection with the gang, intelligence and narcotics unit.
This is an awesome listen, and I encourage Police Chief Burns to reach out to Kanger. He talks about using uniform officers to talk to the kids in the trouble neighborhoods and get them to trust the police and using undercover officers and vehicles to crack down on dealers and gangs.
