Youth Gang Drug Trafficking
(NCJ 178282) December 1999
OJJDP Youth Gang Series, Bulletin, 12 page(s)
Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
Presents nationally representative data on the extent and nature of youth gang involvement in drug trafficking, based on results from the 1996 National Youth Gang Survey. This Youth Gang Series Bulletin analyses survey data on both gang member involvement in drug sales and gang control of drug distribution. It discusses demographic factors including gender, age, and race/ethnicity of gang members and presents data on connections between drug sales and other offenses. The Bulletin also examines prevention strategies and programs that may be effective in jurisdictions that report youth gang involvement in drug trafficking.
