Officers from Homestead and Miami-Dade Schools police discussed increasing gang violence in South Miami-Dade and the ways that police are combatting the problem, during a Cutler Ridge Citizen's Advisory Committee meeting Monday.

Three detectives and Capt. Tom Foglia of the Homestead Police Department, and two detectives from Miami-Dade Schools, said they are working together to fight the problem, which they said is growing across South Dade but particularly in Homestead.

Homestead Detective Lazaro Guerrero said that gangs have "always been there" but now it just seems to me that they are more organized and they are more aggressive."
