The Richland County Sheriff's office has created a Violent Crimes Impact Team.

The 15-member unit will work with similar teams with the Ashland and Huron County Sheriff's offices, and the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms on identifying "hot spots" of potentional criminal activity, and taking a proactive approach to prevent it. 

The team had its first operation last Friday in the Shelby and Shiloh areas, which included 58 traffic stops, six criminal summonses, two felony and two misdemeanor arrest warrants being served, one crack-cocaine arrest, one sex offense arrest, and one firearm being seized.

Sheriff's Captain Eric Bosko believes there's a great potential for the Violent Crimes Impact Team to stop crime before it happens, as crime data, intelligence information, and citizen complaints lead them to potential trouble spots.
