Task Forces can take on any size and shape. They can be formal, like the Native American Drug and Gang Initiative in Wisconsin, or an informal “handshake” agreement, like that between the Coquille Tribe in Oregon and the United States Coast Guard. Task forces can be enforcement specific, training centric, or intelligence networking based.
