Riverside County Gang Task Force
In response to an alarming increase in gang violence, law enforcement officials throughout Riverside County developed a countywide regional strategy for combating the increased gang activity occurring in our communities. The strategy is to combine resources from local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to create eight (8) separate gang task force units across Riverside County. The strategy involves a three-pronged approach including prevention, intervention and suppression. The Riverside County Gang Task Force is committed to creating safe and secure neighborhoods free of violent crime and gang activity. This is done through a collaborative effort combining peace officers, probation officers, parole agents, federal agents and prosecutors whose common objective is to provide targeted intelligence gathering, enforcement, investigation and vigorous prosecution of gang members engaged in criminal activity. The Riverside County Gang Task Force also collaborates with school districts, community organizations and the District Attorney’s Project Safe Neighborhoods program in providing education, intervention and prevention support.
