Recognizing and Responding to
The street gang subculture, once a major city issue, has slowly but steadily made its presence known in Indian Country. Many tribes are struggling to find solutions to this growing problem, which is affecting communities large and small.
This comprehensive class provides the information needed to understand the “gangster mentality” and how it affects communities, families and individuals. It offers strategies and tactics for combating the growth of the gang problem, which, at the core, is a community problem. In addition to a greater understanding of the gang phenomena, the class provides current information on drug usage, because it contributes to criminal and anti-social behavior and is often connected to gang membership.
This interactive class is taught by Christopher Grant,* a nationally recognized law enforcement and Native American youth gang specialist. Mr. Grant, the former Chief of Detectives of the Rapid City, South Dakota Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Division and the former Commander of the Rapid City Area Gang Task Force, has worked in law enforcement for over 30 years. He’ll provide you with the information that you need to understand and address the problem.
While no single solution exists to eradicate gangs and drugs in a community, education and awareness are essential to positive change and prevention. Register today.
