Major Gangs Increasingly Active in West San Fernando Valley

City News Service | Posted by Patch.com | March 22, 2017

sfvalleyLOS ANGELES, CA — Although the west San Fernando Valley enjoys a reputation as a quiet area with a low crime rate, a new report approved Tuesday by the Los Angeles Police Commission found it is home to 16 major gangs and has seen increases in gang-related crimes over the last three years.

The report was requested by the City Council at the behest of Councilman Bob Blumenfield, who introduced the motion in August 2016 in response to a spike in gang-related homicides in 2015 in the area. Blumenfield represents the west Valley neighborhoods of Canoga Park, Reseda, Tarzana, Winnetka and Woodland Hills.

“A lot of people can’t imagine the west Valley has these kinds of issues, and sadly we do,” Blumenfield told City News Service. “I don’t want to over-exaggerate the issues but I want us to have our eyes open because the only way we are going to deal with this problem is acknowledging it and doing everything we can to combat it.”
