Gang Suppression Unit









    The Gang Suppression Unit was formed in January 2006.  The formation of the unit enables a flexible response capability to evolving crime trends within Ewing.  The primary responsibility of the Gang Suppression Unit is gang intervention and street crime suppression.  In addition to this primary mission, the unit also addresses order maintenance and quality of life concerns within the community.  Gang Suppression Unit personnel utilize Community Oriented-Problem Solving Policing methods to accomplish this mission.

     To provide the required flexibility in this proactive response the unit works a varied schedule dependent upon the specific "problem" assigned to resolve.  Gang Suppression Unit personnel are not typically assigned calls-for-service which allows for a focused proactive response to specific crime issues.  Unit personnel work in coordination and cooperation with other departmental bureaus, Mercer County Special Investigation Unit, Mercer County Sheriff's Office, the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office and other local police departments.

     If you have seen suspicious activity and would like to report it call our tipline below.  If it is an emergency and needs immediate police response call 911 or 609-882-1313.
