Salinas agencies team up in aggressive plan to fight gang crime

Staff report • October 13, 2008

Three Monterey County law enforcement agencies have announced a joint plan to end violence in Salinas.

Led by the Salinas Police Department, “Operation Impact” is a team effort between the police, the California Highway Patrol, the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office, the Monterey County Probation Department and the California Department of Corrections Parole Division.

The venture will focus on gang-related crime such as assaults, street-level drug sales, burglaries, auto thefts, drive-by shootings and homicides.

Salinas police said that this year’s increase in gang-related crimes and the department’s lack of resources make the collaboration necessary.

Both the probation department and the CDC parole division have pledged to contribute personnel to assist with probationers and parolees contacted or arrested during the operation.

The Sheriff’s Office will provide extra patrol officers to help with transporting and booking people arrested during crimes.

The CHP will provide officers to help fight violent crime through a zero tolerance approach to traffic enforcement and arrest warrants in felony and misdemeanor cases.

A press conference providing additional details will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday on the steps of City Hall, 200 Lincoln Ave., Salinas.
