Precinct Six Constable Victor Trevino on Tuesday debuted his agency's first ever gang prevention and enforcement unit, to fight crime and gang activity in east Houston. "We're not gonna accept it here," Trevino said. "I'm not gonna accept any criminal activity where a group of individuals get together and terrorize a community."

The five-man unit will fight the gang problem in part by working closely with community organizations including churches and civic groups.

The team will also meet with students at various schools to teach them about the dangers of getting involved with gangs.
