This webinar presents formal and informal techniques to recognize signs of gang activity in a school setting. Establishing reliable evidence of gang presence in and around a school depends on the sharing and validation of information among school personnel, youth service providers, and local law enforcement. Taken together, this authentication of information establishes a more accurate picture of the level of disruption and threat to school safety posed by gang-involved youth. It protects individual students from unsubstantiated labels. It equips school administrators with the ability to develop data-driven policies and effectively respond to gangs in their schools.
