Sacramento is centrally located between the Bay Area’s beautiful coast and the majestic Sierra Nevada mountain range.

The Office of Violence Prevention Manager serves as the City’s staff resource for gang prevention and intervention and coordinates a comprehensive effort to address youth and gang violence. The Office of Violence Prevention (OVP) was created to respond to increased gang activity in the City of Sacramento and consists of two staff: the OVP Manager and a Program Analyst. The OVP Manager is an expert in violence reduction programs and grant management who uses the latest research and best practices with an intentional focus on prevention and intervention services to gang-impacted populations.
