A large-scale gang enforcement operation, dubbed “Operation Triple Beam Colorado,” in which a number of Colorado law enforcement agencies partnered with the U.S. Marshals Service from May 15 through August 10, led to the arrest of 156 people.

OTB Colorado saw the participation of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, Colorado Springs Police Department, Colorado Department of Corrections, Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office, Pueblo Police Department, Colorado Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration, the Department of Homeland Security and the United States Attorney’s Office, all working on the U.S. Marshals Service-led operation aimed at providing communities with immediate relief from gang-related violence by targeting fugitive gang members and the organizations responsible for committing violent crimes.

The District of Colorado’s U.S. Marshals Violent Offender Task Force (COVOTF) specifically targets violent offenders with active local, state and federal arrest warrants. The task force is composed of law enforcement agencies located in Colorado that choose to participate in apprehending violent offenders in our communities.

“This joint operation had the added effect of strengthening the relationship among our local, state and federal law enforcement counterparts,” said David Weaver, U.S. Marshal for the District of Colorado. “The U.S. Marshals provided multiple resources to include manpower, funds and essential equipment to assist local, state and federal partners in this operation.”

Since its inception in 2010, Operation Triple Beam has been conducted 50 times nationwide, resulting in more than 8,000 arrests and the seizure of more than 1,800 illegal firearms.
