The task force’s operations include a more thorough inspection of social service facilities such as schools, entertainment centers, restaurants, seashore storages, supermarkets, religious centers, gasoline stations, medical centers, hotels, motels, and gambling centers.

As part of its responsibilities, the task force will protect the sanctity of cemeteries in both cities, strengthen vehicle regulations to ensure public safety, and jointly enforce applicable zoning regulations.
