The NMGIA offers investigative support through intelligence services to members, their respective agencies and member agencies. The NMGIA Intelligence Committee works with requesting members to conduct various intelligence functions in support of criminal investigations, acting as a force multiplier for smaller agencies or those without the resources to combat criminal gangs in their respective jurisdictions.
Group Discussion Forums
Members have access to online group discussions forums specific to their Region (I - VII) or may request a special interest group discussion forum, dedicated to the topic requested. The development of a special interest group discussion forum must be petitioned to the board via a special meeting and will be launched upon majority vote of the membership. Special meeting requests are available in the Member Menu.
The NMGIA offers a dedicated group discussion forum to specific gang units, taskforces or case working groups who are part of a GROUP MEMBERSHIP which does not require any action!
In person intelligence exchange forums are held during NMGIA monthly meetings, regional training seminars and the annual conference. Intelligence provided by the membership and gathered from the various intelligence platforms are submitted to the NMGIA Intelligence Committee for analysis. Products are developed and disseminated in the secure "members only" area for viewing.
