The Gang Threat 

Gangs are morphing, multiplying, migrating and entrenching themselves in our inner cities, suburbs and rural communities.   They are selling drugs to our kids, shooting up our neighborhoods, invading our homes, robbing our banks and stores, stealing our identities, our money, and instilling fear and violence everywhere they go.

Gangs and Organized Crime

It's time to learn about gangs
and how to recognize them

Most people don't want to admit that gangs and violence exist in our home towns and sometime in our own families.  If we don't educate ourselves you on what's going on we can't help our sons, daughters and friends. Talking about the problem is the first step to fixing it.  If not, we know one group that will listen to your children - gang members.
