How many gangs operate in the Los Angeles area

Unread post by NW10 » February 10th, 2006, 4:34 am

whilst i am aware the number of bloods and crips and sureno gangs identified by alonso stands at 775. what is the number of gangs operating in los angeles county not just street gangs but crime families, organised crime groups etc...

in london there are around 1,000 identified crime gangs which includes street gangs, wo shing wo 14k and snakehead triads, turkish families, kurdish, nigerian fraud gangs etc... all types of gangs that are known to the police.

if you include all types of gangs in los angeles how many crime gangs would there be operating in los angeles

are the law enforcement agencies likely to have a figure or estimation for this and if so does anyone know what it is
