Who We Are

E-mail Print

We are a police department that has a strong desire to address our gang issue. We understand that the problem will not go away overnight, but with the assistance of our community (parents, neighbors, youth, elected officials, faith based, and educators) teaming up with us, we can make a change.

Our mission and purpose is to educate the community at large in response to the increasing amount of gang activity and gang related violence that is occurring with in the City of Manteca. Manteca Police Department will be very active in enforcement and suppression toward gang members and gang activity in Manteca, but we also understand that we must make our children and citizens aware of the issue. We must educate our children of the danger of joining gangs.

Our hope is that this site will enlighten and encourage parents and community members alike on solutions to stop the violence and obtain prevention measures to stop youths’ initial gang involvement. In cooperation with local leaders and government, we will be able to enhance our community’s knowledge of gangs, and gang prevention.

MPD's Gang Unit is now on Facebook. 


Live it to the fullest
