[ARCHIVED] Gang Sweep Results in 16 Arrests

Hemet Police Gang Sweep

On 05-23-13, members of the Hemet/San Jacinto Gang Task Force, the San Jacinto Police Department Special Enforcement Team, and additional Riverside County Regional Gang Task Force teams conducted a gang saturation operation in the Hemet/San Jacinto Valley.
Approximately 18 law enforcement officers participated in this event. Officers conducted high visibility saturation patrol in areas frequented by gang members. Officers also conducted pre-determined probation and parole compliance checks targeting documented gang members.

Hemet Police Chief Dave Brown said “The impact of the Gang Task Force on crime in the Valley is impressive. These men and women and the agencies involved are committed to the on-going effort to rid our community of thugs who chose to prey on good people rather than contribute to society. We will continue to hit them hard with the joint resources of the Hemet/San Jacinto Valley Gang Task Force.”

The Hemet/San Jacinto Gang Task Force has been in existence since April 2006. The Law Enforcement Agencies within “The Valley” have been working together since this time on a daily basis. The Hemet/San Jacinto Gang Task Force is comprised of members from the Hemet Police Department, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, San Jacinto Police Department, Riverside County District Attorney’s Office, Riverside County Probation Department, and the California Highway Patrol. The law enforcement leadership within the valley meets regularly and coordinates the Hemet/San Jacinto Gang Task Force activities.

The Hemet/San Jacinto Gang Task Force is one of eight teams composing the entire Riverside County Regional Gang Task Force, which is a collaborative effort of 22 law enforcement agencies with the goal of combating criminal street gangs.
