Gang Unit

The Gang Unit investigates gang-related criminal activities.  Through a combination of high-visibility uniformed patrols and plainclothes surveillance, the Gang Unit meets the challenges of suppressing gang activity, and uses directed enforcement as a means of holding gang members accountable.

​The Orange Police Department's Gang Unit is also part of the Tri-Agency Resource Gang Enforcement Team (TARGET) which collaborates with other members of the Orange County District Attorney's office and Orange County Probation Department.
