PRESENTATION:

“Gangs 101: a Big City Problem, a Small Town Reality”

By: Lt. Edwin Torres - Special Agent

New Jersey State Commission of Investigation;

Organized Crime/Criminal Street Gangs Unit

Gang membership is increasing at an alarming rate, and so is the violence and illegal activity associated with it. Gangs are no longer limited to urban areas. They are flourishing in neighborhoods all over New Jersey. Their activity also leaves a wake of innocent victims. Lt. Torres will provide an up-close look at the gangs actively recruiting local youth and provide the tools necessary to identify the symbols, etc. associated with gang membership. The training will give attendees insight on the gang culture and psychology, nationally and specifically to New Jersey, and understanding about the trauma gang affiliation causes. And more importantly, Lt. Torres will provide strategies to intervene if it is suspected that a youth may be involved in gang activity.
