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 Hemet/San Jacinto Gang Task Force operates in the Cities of Hemet and San Jacinto and the unincorporated areas of Hemet. The law enforcement leadership within the valley meets regularly and coordinates the Hemet/San Jacinto Gang Task Force activities. Since the formation of the task force, leadership has recognized the importance of working together to provide the highest level of service for the citizens within the Hemet/San Jacinto Valley.

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.
