This webinar, sponsored by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, will focus on the importance of leveraging multijurisdictional criminal justice partnerships. It will also explore how to gain and sustain agency support of the task force’s mission. The discussion will include best practices for hiring and training task force personnel and how to identify the type of experts who should be sought when developing a violent gang task force. In addition, ways to identify major violent street gangs and how to target specific community needs in combating gang violence will be discussed.
This webinar will highlight the two Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Gang Suppression solicitations available to prevent and reduce gang-related crime and violence. Key components will be discussed, to include eligibility, goals, objectives, deliverables, and budgetary requirements. The National Gang Center will also highlight ways in which jurisdictions can introduce and/or strengthen comprehensive approaches to develop strategic gang-reduction plans and/or to implement coordinated gang suppression strategies.
