The Safe Communities Task Force is excited to announce the release of its comprehensive gang assessment, authored by Clay Mosher of WSU Vancouver and funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance. For those who have been following the Safe Communities Task Force, it will come as no surprise that the report found "a significant gang presence, which includes Caucasian gangs (Juggalos and White Supremacist groups); Latino gangs (Nortenos, Surenos, etc.); African-American gangs (Bloods, Crips, etc.) as well as several others." The report also provides detailed information on the nature of crimes committed by local gangs, school-related data, community perceptions of the gang problem, and a review of available resources.
