What can you do?

It's not just a police problem; it's a community problem.

Get Involved!

Become aware of what's going on in your neighborhood and community. Report the following incidents to the police immediately:

 

  • vandalism
  • loitering
  • drug activity

Report and Remove Graffiti!

Graffiti serves as a territorial marker to gang members. When you see graffiti on school buildings or property, block walls, houses, and sidewalks, report it to law enforcement officials and remove it immediately after taking photographs.

Be Involved in Your Children's Lives

Be aware of changes that occur with your children, such as dress changes, selection of friends, truancy, violence, and disregard for persons or property. Also be aware if your child has purchased new and expensive items or if your child has extra money that can't be accounted for.

Changes in behavior and dress can be a normal part of adolescence or an indication of inappropriate identification and association. Know the difference by being an involved parent.

Parental, neighborhood, and law enforcement involvement is the only way gang activity will be curbed.

Remember, this is your school community--not the gangs'!
