Gang Prevention GANG PREVENTIONThe target group of my initial report was a relatively small group of juveniles that live around the corner from my home on an adjacent street. I compared these youths to another group in the Valley High / Center Parkway area that were in the same age groups between 10 and 15 years of age. The neighborhoods were both middle class areas, although they were very similar at a glance; I found them to be very different demographically and physically.
According to my notes taken in class on the Fifth of May, The Valley High area could be considered a level 3 gang threat problem. Emerging gang activity, one or more gangs in the area, schools and parks are often places for youths to congregate and the gang activity seems to be a medium constant in growth. The Cavendish youth group would fall under a level 1 threat, no imminent danger. The Juveniles on Cavendish Way usually are engaged in some sort of physical activity other than fighting.
I believe these youths have a stronger sense of loyalty to family particularly to parents.
