Gang Task Force (GTF)

The Countywide Gang Task Force was established in August 2005 by mutual agreement between the membership of the San Mateo County Police Chiefs and Sheriffs’ Association. The Gang Task Force is comprised of personnel from each law enforcement agency in San Mateo County, the Probation Department, and the District Attorney's Office, and it utilizes state and federal resources, as well. Their mission is to take a pro-active approach to the increased presence of gang activity and related violence in San Mateo County through intelligence driven enforcement operations in order to improve the safety and quality of life in our community.
