Mayor's Gang Prevention Task Force
Since taking office, Mayor Reed has invested in the Mayor’s Gang Prevention Task Force (MGPTF) as a key tool to keeping our streets and children safe. 

Established in 1991 by former Mayor Susan Hammer, the Mayor’s Gang Prevention Task Force is a broad coalition made up of: local residents; city, county and state government leaders; school officials; community and faith-based organizations; and local law enforcement. The Task Force brings these diverse stakeholders together and leverages each group’s expertise as part of a coordinated, interagency effort to curb gang-related activity in San Jose. Learn more about the Task Force’s structure and membership.

The Task Force’s work is guided by a comprehensive 5-Year Strategic Workplan and encompasses a continuum of prevention, intervention, suppression, and rehabilitation services. View some of the programs and services.
