Gang Prevention Task Force First-Year Plan Approved

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

The Gang Prevention Task Force created by Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson has had its plans for the next year approved by the Sacramento City Council.   

The plan was created after a year-and-a-half of community meetings and focus groups. 

The long-term goal of the task force is to keep kids out of gangs and give those who are already in gangs something better to do.

The short term, first-year goals are to negotiate a cease-fire among gangs in South Sacramento, provide violence reduction training for community groups and create a literacy project to improve at-risk children's performance in school. 

The plan calls for support of late-night police and sheriff's athletic leagues in high-crime neighborhoods.  

In July, the task force became part of the City Parks and Recreation Department.
