Prince William Area Gang Response Intervention Team (G.R.I.T.)
Serving Prince William County, the City of Manassas and the City of Manassas Park
Gangs continue to be of concern in the Prince William Area and are being addressed through a well-coordinated and comprehensive regional strategy of enforcement, education, prevention and intervention. The Gang Response Intervention Team (G.R.I.T.) is a dedicated group of concerned public and private citizens who want to bring a coordinated response to this challenging issue. The G.R.I.T. coordinator is available to answer questions concerning gangs or to help guide you to the resources you might need to help address a gang issue.
The mission of the Prince William Gang Response Intervention Team is to bring together key public officials and community leaders from Prince William County and the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park (the Prince William Area) who can advise on and promote the coordination of, and encourage a collaborative community-based response to, the region’s gang prevention efforts.
Prevent children, youth and young adults from gang involvement and assist gang-involved youth and young adults at-risk of gang involvement to leave the gang lifestyle.
