Gang Unit Management

Hours: 8
Tuition: $125

Program Information:

Street gangs remain a terrible burden in our society and are no longer considered to be a big city problem. In many communities throughout the United States, gangs are expanding rapidly and are plaguing mid-size and smaller cities. In order to address this issue many police departments across the country have come to rely on police gang units. The primary goal of any gang unit is to produce a reduction in gang activity. This 8-hour one-day program will assist law enforcement agencies in developing a mission for gang unit operations and addressing common problems that can affect its overall success.

Objectives of this class:

  • Developing a Mission for Gang Unit Operations (The Do & Don'ts)

  • Overcoming issues in personnel management

  • Addressing common problems that can affect gang unit operations

  • Develop measurable outcomes to support gang unit operations

  • Ways to conduct a gang assessment to determine the extent of gang activity in your community

  • Create a system for tracking and maintaining gang intelligence

*Attendees will receive a flash-drive with software for tracking  maintaining  gang intelligence


**Cancellations for this class must be received by SLEA 35 days prior to the start of the program in order to avoid being billed!**
