Special Operations - Gang Task Force


The mission of the Louisa County Sheriff's Office Gang Task Force is to improve the quality of life in the community by suppressing gang activity and decreasing the violent crime rate as it relates to "Street Level Crime" perpetrated by members of criminal street gangs. The Unit supports the Mission Statement and values of the Louisa County Sheriff's Office through various strategies of "Gang Interdiction" and "Intelligence Lead Policing" which include:

  • Investigative Techniques
  • Proactive Strategies
  • Intelligence Gathering
  • Arrests
The Gang Unit will identify, monitor, gather information on, investigate for prosecution and take enforcement action on gangs and their members. The unit has been successful in reducing violent crime and impacting the threat that gangs and extremists pose to the community, through targeting various crime locations and criminals. The gang task force works with all divisions of the Louisa County Sheriff's Office, as well as, in concert with other local, state and federal agencies.

The Gang Task Force was formed in 2008, for the purpose of removing the threat of gangs, guns, drugs and any other gang related criminal activity from the communities within the County of Louisa.
