The Task Force is a formalization and expansion of partnerships between the Office of Attorney General, Allegheny County District Attorney's Office, Allegheny County Police Department, Pittsburgh Police Department, and other local, state, and federal agencies. The newly-formed Task Force will bolster personnel, resources, technology, and community outreach efforts to combat firearms trafficking and gun violence in Allegheny County.
