Organized by the Gang Reduction Intervention Partnership, the sweep began about 10 p.m. Thursday – with officers bringing violators to command posts in Anaheim, Aliso Viejo and Orange.

Anaheim investigator Ed Arevalo was featured in a wire service story that was picked up by a number of news agencies.

“It’s a little bit of scared straight, a little bit of tough love and then we give them the resources to follow up with social services,” Arevalo told a reporter.
