Law enforcement officials from multiple agencies announced on Monday that 38 “notorious” gang members have been arrested as a result of investigations dating back to the summer of 2015 in an area of Los Angeles known as the Vermont Corridor.

The four-square-mile area along Vermont Avenue stretches from Hollywood Boulevard to 120th Street. The so-called Vermont Corridor Task Force is comprised of investigators from the Los Angeles Police Department, U.S. Marshals Service, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the District Attorney’s Office’s Major Narcotics and Hardcore Gang divisions.

The group began investigating in response to an increase in gang violence that began in the area in early 2015, authorities said. The crimes included nine murders, as well as attempted murders and sexual assaults.
