  Gangs and Organized Crime Bureau  
  The Gangs and Organized Crimes Bureau investigates and prosecutes organized criminal enterprises operating throughout New Jersey. Those enterprises range from criminal street gangs to traditional organized crime.   
  A hallmark of the State's strategy in addressing the threat of gangs and organized crime has always involved the investigation and prosecution of the leadership ranks of the various enterprises as opposed to the multitude of underlings who commit illegal acts in their name. Disruption of the command structure of any organization, legal or illicit, has long been recognized as the most effective way of dismantling it. This is particularly true as to criminal enterprises that follow rigid and hierarchical command structures. Dismantling top levels of criminal organizations leave obedient underlings scrambling for direction. Consequently, these underlings are rendered impotent in their ability to execute coordinated and far reaching criminal activities formerly orchestrated by the leadership. Indeed, coordination of criminal activities of many by the few in power affords gang and organized crime enterprises the ability to inflict the greatest economic harm, generate the highest levels of intimidation/violence in our communities, and wield the most significant corrupt influences.
