GANGS: Is Your Community Prepared?

 

Although gangs are not new to California , they have spread from major urban areas to the suburbs and rural communities.   For decades they have been associated with fighting, vandalism, and robbery.

 

In the past two decades, however, gang activities have become more alarming and dangerous. Drive-by shootings, carjackings, home invasions, and other acts of senseless violence have become too frequent in communities throughout California , destroying the lives of all who are touched by this violence.

With the spread of gangs and their increasingly random violence, we cannot afford to ignore their presence.   We must respond as a community.   We must all work together - parents, community members, clergy, businesses, educators, law enforcement, and local government.   We must find ways to steer our youth away from gangs.   We have the power to give them options, opportunities, and alternatives to joining gangs.

 

This site provides general information about gangs, how to recognize signs of gang involvement, and what you and your community can do to prevent gang activity.
