Addressing Gangs: Introduction to the Comprehensive Gang Model
Thursday, April 15, 2021 · 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m., ET
This webinar will serve as the first in the "Addressing Gangs" webinar series, which will provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the process to implement a comprehensive gang reduction strategy in their community as well as practical guidance and resources. This series is intended for community organizations, local government leaders, law enforcement officials, and other stakeholders in communities impacted by youth gangs that are interested in a multidisciplinary strategy such as the OJJDP Comprehensive Gang Model (CGM or the Model). This webinar will serve as an introduction to the CGM and its five core strategies—social intervention, community mobilization, suppression, opportunities provision, and organizational change and development—with a Q&A to address questions for those interested in the Model.
