You Can Help Prevent Gang Activity
"The pervasiveness of gang throughout society is undeniable. They incite fear and violence within our communities. Gangs threaten our schools, our children, and our homes. Gangs today are more sophisticated and flagrant in their use of violence and intimidation tactics. As they migrate across the country, they bring with them drugs, weapons and criminal activity. Acceptance of the problem and joint community and law enforcement responses are our best defense."
