Best Practices To Address Community Gang Problems: OJJDP's Comprehensive Gang Model (Second Edition)
(NCJ 231200) October 2010
Report, 63 page(s)
Provides guidance on how communities can best address an existing or emerging youth gang problem. The guidance is based on the Comprehensive Gang Model developed by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. The report describes the research that produced the model and offers best practices obtained from practitioners with years of experience in planning, implementing, and overseeing variations of the model within their communities. This second edition includes a summary of findings from an independent evaluation of OJJDPs Gang Reduction Program, a demonstration of the anti-gang framework in four target sites.
