Multi-Jurisdictional Gang Task Force NR18149ll

Los Angeles: In the early morning hours, personnel from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, East Los Angeles Station, and the Los Angeles Police Department Hollenbeck Area Gang Impact Team, worked together to address recent gang violence that has plagued both jurisdictions.

On May 23, 2018, over forty officers participated in the multi-jurisdictional parole and probation task force, with the assistance of other governmental agencies such as Los Angeles County Department of Probation and the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).

The individuals that were involved in the compliance searches were identified as being some of the most active, and violent from their respective criminal street gangs. The intent of the action was to ensure that the individuals were in compliance with court ordered conditions, and if they were, intervention services, such as job training and other support services were offered.

As a result of the 35 compliance checks nine gang members were arrested, six firearms were recovered, including an assault rifle. In addition, an explosive device was recovered and rendered safe by LASD personnel, and as various-types of ammunition were recovered as evidence.

The multi-jurisdictional efforts will increase in the coming months and will involve agencies from throughout the East Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley Area. The agencies involved are committed to the safety and overall reduction of gang violence.
