Cheyenne gangs: “They’re legit … not just wannabes,” says Sgt. Rob Dafoe
It has positively identified 109 gang members living in Laramie County and is in the process of researching 67 more.
The team of 11 Cheyenne police officers and one supervisor is spearheading the effort, along with various Laramie County organizations, to monitor and prevent gang-related activity in the area.
“The gangs that we deal with are those whose common focus is criminal acts,” Cheyenne Police Sgt. Rob Dafoe said. “For anybody to sit back and think that a gang problem in any community is going to go away or get better has another thought coming.”
He said the primary gangs in the area are off branches from the “Surenos,” based out of southern California.
“These are real people; they’re legit,” Dafoe said. “They’re not just wannabes.”
