The West San Gabriel Valley Anti-Crime Task Force is based out of the Arcadia Police Department and the primary focus of the team is AB 109 compliance. The team is led by a Pasadena PD Sergeant and has assigned Detectives from Arcadia PD, El Monte PD, Monrovia PD, Monterey Park PD, Pasadena PD, and South Pasadena PD. Other participating agencies include the Alhambra PD, Montebello PD, and San Gabriel PD. Costs associated for the team are offset by contributions from the State for an AB 109 enforcement program approved in the State budget.
The WSGVACTF is active throughout the area and has made several good arrests recently. The team recovered a stolen handgun taken during a West Covina residential burglary, found a wanted Parolee-at-large, and this morning, arrested a suspect after an in-progress auto burglary call in Pasadena.
