Santa Barbara County leaders are discussing the possibility of starting a gang injunction in Santa Barbara. Recent gang activity in the city has renewed the push for an injunction. Currently, Santa Maria does not have a gang injunction. Lompoc has had an injunction since 2005.
According to the American Civil Liberties Union, a gang injunction is a court order that prohibits alleged gang members and their associates' from doing certain things usually including association with one another, loitering and other activities, many of which are already crimes within a defined area or neighborhood.
