There is a number of known gangs operating in the area of London. All officers must take extra precautions when patrolling or driving through the known gang areas.
Only Authorised Firearms Officers (AFO) should approach any of the gang members. Any other officers must not approach any of the gang members or stop and search any gang members. Performing stop and searches on gang members often can lead to a shoot out which puts the officer lives at risk.
The Ballas gang controls the territory of Grove Street. The Ballas have been known to wear purple outfits and baseball jackets. The gang maintains a traditional rivalry with the Families. The gang does not usually attack officers while passing through the territory. However, if antagonised or if shots are fired within the territory Ballas members are known to respond back with fire. Intelligence indicates the gang members breed dangerous dogs which are used during fights.
The Families Gang primarily operates at Forum Drive. The gang members are known to wear green outfits, often seen drinking, driving vehicles or engaging in illegal street races. Due to the close proximity of the Ballas gang, shootouts are a frequent occurrence between the rival gangs.
