    Oakland law enforcement is putting together a task force in an effort to prevent sideshows from happening in the Bay Area.

    Instead of working as separate law enforcement agencies, the Bay Area is splitting up the task force between the North and the South Bay with Oakland police taking a lead for the Northern counties and Fremont taking the lead for counties in the South.

    “Instead of one agency or a couple of agencies trying to deal with this, we’re going to join forces and work together,” said Alameda County Sheriff, Ray Kelly.

    According to officials, the two groups will join forces if needed in any given situation.
