Unfortunately gang problem is a global one and no longer confined to a specific neighborhood.
There are several gangs throughout the City of Los Angeles. Every area has a LAPD SLO (Senior Lead Officer) assigned. I believe that you may be in the Southwest Community Police Station district. I have posted their number below for you to call. Ask for the Community Relations Office (CRO). This is the office of the SLO's and the SLO assigned to your area will have the latest information about gang activity in your area.
If you are having a gang related issue or just want more informarion, your SLO will help you. You may also have a Block Captain, Neighborhood Association and also a Neighborhood Council in which you may take issues to for resolve. This is all part of community policing and the City of Los Angeles's master plan.
Every police station has a CPAB (Community Police Advisory Board) meeting, which is open to the public, and they meet once a month. They discuss issues relevant to the area with the SLO's, Station Captian and other officers and attempt to come up with solutions to deter clime in their areas.

Give them a call. Get informed. Become proactive.
I was the President of my Neighborhood Association for 4 years, have been the Secretary and Co-Chair of the CPAB at Wilshire Division, Block Captain, and brought back community based policing in my neighborhood. Now years later, our neighborhood continues to be safe and the residents continue to be pro-active. This is key to a successful and safe neighborhood.

One way to check is ask some local kids and the neighbors. I find them to be truthful and unbiased.

Your best resource is to check with the LAPD. They should be able to let you know what gang activity is in your area.
