EAST PRICE HILL (FOX19) -

Cincinnati Police say they've arrested a slew of suspects in the latest crackdown on gang violence and drug activity.

Tuesday's arrests centered on suspects in District Three, or East Price Hill. Police arrested 14 people in the initial list, then seven others also on outstanding warrants.

CIRV, or the Cincinnati Initiative to Reduce Violence, oversaw the effort.

"This is a good day in District Three, we are very happy to have these people off our streets," said officer Dan Gerrard.

Police say they began their day arresting suspects at an apartment complex just across the street from the police station. They called it a hub for gang activity.

One man told FOX19 he was in a dead sleep when the police arrived.

"I got handcuffed and I started getting scared because well, I know about jail. We came downstairs, what's happening, what is this, a search warrant, what's going on?" said Grover Davis, who lives at the complex.

Police say the element of surprise is critical to their efforts.

"The goal of CIRV is to reduce the violence in our city, specifically shootings and homicides," said S. Gregory Baker, who works with CIRV.
 
Police are also looking for 15 other people in connection with these cases.
