"Everything has to do with gangs, has to do with drugs, anything to do with drugs has to do with violence as well," said Shelby County Sheriff's Assistant Chief Deputy, Mark Dunbar.
Dunbar told the Memphis delegation studied every aspect of the operation for three days.
"Everyone's on the same page working together," said Dunbar. "When one has a problem, they look at it as everybody has a problem and they attack it as that."
Their initiatives were brought back to Shelby County. The key players plan to meet to see what magic the Fresno plan can do for Memphis.
"If you're not on the same page together, you're not fighting it together then it's not going to be as effective," said Dunbar.

"We are trying to be a little bit more aggressive," says SCSO Assistant Chief Mark Dunbar, "in trying to make sure those individuals are brought into custody as quickly as they can be."
Dunbar says the nine member team was put together three weeks ago, and has already made around 275 felony arrests.
"We don't bat 100 percent," says Dunbar, "but we try the best we can, especially when they are violent felons."
Dunbar says the fugitive team is also looking at old felony warrants to see if the files can be resurrected.
"It's not all luck," he tells "It's our guys getting out there, pounding the pavement and looking for these people, and working hard."
