Gangs will be the main topic of discussion tonight in the City of Action.

The Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office along with Riverbank Police Services (RPS) is hosting a Gang Awareness Presentation, open to all interested residents, at St. Frances of Rome Catholic Church, 2827 Topeka St.

The topic of identifying and addressing gang problems will be tops on the agenda for the Wednesday, June 17 program, slated for 7 p.m.

In a separate crime-fighting effort, the Stanislaus County Auto Theft Task Force has provided Riverbank Police Services with steering wheel locking devices (commonly known as ‘the Club’) to distribute to owners of the most frequently stolen vehicles in Stanislaus County. To find out if your vehicle made the list of the frequently stolen, contact Riverbank Police at 209-869-7162.

To receive the steering wheel locking device, registered owners must bring in their registration and/or vehicle to Riverbank Police Services, 6727 Third St., Riverbank, to verify they own the vehicle. The locking devices will be given away while supplies last.
