Thank you for taking a moment to visit the Kansas Gang Investigators Association (KGIA) website. KGIA was established in 2006 in response to the growing gang-related crimes affecting our communities. We are volunteer members that dedicate our time to making our communities a safer place through this association. We work to serve all of our partners at every level in the criminal justice system and build relationships that promote information gathering and sharing to be pro-active in the war on gangs. We are proud of the quality training provided at our conference each year and focus on timely topics and provide expert tools to combat our state's gang problems. My hope is that you bookmark this page and learn more from the resources we've organized on this site. KGIA is here for you, so please contact us if we can provide a resource for your agency.

Stay Safe,
Tony Moe
KGIA President
The mission statement of the Kansas Gang Investigator’s Association (KGIA) is to increase the awareness of gangs and gang activity within the State of Kansas and to assist law enforcement and other related agencies in recognizing and combating gang activity. The KGIA is committed to providing current information and establishing a network between the KGIA membership, fellow associations, law enforcement agencies, and the State Legislature.
The Kansas Gang Investigators Association was officially formed in April of 2006. The idea of this organization was thought of years prior when officers from the Dodge City/ Garden City area began to deal with an influx of gang related crimes as a result of West Coast Gang Influence. In 2004, Topeka Police Gang Intelligence Officers begin to network and share information pertinent to gang members, trends and other related topics with our Western Kansas counterparts. A partnership grew and information became fluid and more widespread. In 2005, The Topeka Police Gang Unit facilitated the Capital City Gang Conference which drew over 100+ criminal justice professionals. As a result of the success of this conference, KC metro area officers conceived the Metro Gang Task Force which included monthly intelligence meetings. Realizing that we needed to legitimize our gang problems in our state, the KGIA was officially formed introducing a more cohesive method in combating gangs in our region. Since a very successful inaugural conference in 2007, the KGIA continues to grow in size and strives to improve the quality of life for all citizens in Kansas.
KGIA is a proud member of
