Governor Brian Kemp described the gang activity in Georgia Tuesday as alarming. Kemp pledged to work with a coalition of officials trying to combat the problem.

The governor met with members of the Georgia Anti-Gang Network for the first time Tuesday afternoon.

Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr formed the group last fall in an effort to connect local, state and federal officials so that they could develop better strategies to address gang activity.

The Georgia Anti-Gang Network includes partners from the FBI, the GBI, the ATF, and several other agencies.
