Gang tip hotline opens
The West County Gang Unit has established a Gang Tip Hotline so that residents can report ongoing gang activity in unincorporated neighborhoods of West Ventura County.
The Gang Tip Hotline, (888) 58GANGS (5842647), was created to allow residents to anonymously report ongoing gang activity. The West County Gang Unit encourages residents to use the hotline to report gang activity in their neighborhoods. Callers should include the location, time of activity and a brief description of what is occurring.
Residents wishing to speak directly with a gang investigator may call (805) 654-2856. This number is for ongoing nonemergency gang activity. Residents should call 911 for any crimes that are in progress.
