Guns, drugs and more than 40 arrests in an area notorious for violent crime.
FOX23 News was there when Tulsa police in the Gilcrease Division on special assignment made several arrests targeting violent suspects.
Four officers and a supervisor saturated the Gilcrease Division area for three weeks and made more than 46 arrests, including seizing 12 guns illegally on the street.
"Summer is going to get hot you never know what is going to happen," said North Tulsa resident Carey Jackson.
During a ride-a-long police stopped a juvenile with an ankle monitor from a gun crime and also a driver who had marijuana in his car.
During the enforcement, police also found crack cocaine and a machete on former OU football player, De'Mond Parker, 36.
When they pulled over Tyrone Shaw, 29, they found a loaded AK47 in the car and also a homemade .22 caliber "zip gun in Maurice Peel's, 27, car.
Both were pulled over on separate traffic stops and are former felons.
"It's dangerous, it really is dangerous," said Jackson.
He moved to North Tulsa after surviving the Oklahoma City bombings and wants guns off the street.
"There are so much going on little kids getting hurt in drive by's," said Jackson.
With a TPD manpower shortage, special assignments like this rarely happen. Police say it takes officers out of patrol and away from answering calls but it may keep them from responding to the next deadly shooting.
"I'm proud of what they are doing, they have to do what they have to do to keep everyone protected," said Jackson.
In another gun case, it shows James Fitzpatrick, 30, for having a gun that was stolen in a burglary.
Officers plan to continue the special assignments.
In 14 days officers made:
27 felony charges
80 misdemeanor charges
14 drug arrests
6 felony warrants
145 misdemeanor warrants
