Task Force recommends ways to combat Omaha’s gun violence

The Omaha Illegal Gun Task Force continues to make recommendations to city officials on ways to reduce gun crimes. Jonathan Crosby is a special city prosecutor and task force member and says they would like to see the addition of one Omaha police gang specialist.

Other recommendations include more gun amnesty and by-back programs, alternative sentencing for misdemeanor gun crimes and stricter penalties for repeat offenders.
