Online Tool Provides Strategies for Preventing Community Gang Violence


OJJDP has created an online tool that teaches communities effective strategies to address local gang problems. The tool, provided by OJJDP and BJA’s National Gang Center, is called the Comprehensive Gang Model Overview. It provides a 23-minute discussion of OJJDP’s Model for identifying target areas with high levels of gang activity, locating gangs, and focusing appropriate resources on them. The tool also describes how communities can follow proven anti-gang strategies and how to implement the Model locally.
