National Gang Center Community Violence Intervention—Addressing Gangs: Understanding Violence in Your Community Webinar

Event Dates

The fifth webinar, Understanding Violence in Your Community, in the "Community Violence Intervention—Addressing Gangs" series focuses on the need for conducting a comprehensive and systematic community gang assessment to determine the nature and scope of what is driving the violence in a community.  In communities where gangs are perceived as the drivers of violence, an in-depth analysis will determine if this is accurate and ultimately guide the selection of appropriate gang prevention, intervention, and suppression strategies.

As a result of this webinar, participants will be able to: 

  • Articulate why a community gang assessment should be conducted
  • Explain the process for conducting a community gang assessment
  • Identify how a community gang assessment drives strategy
