This program furthers the Department’s mission by supporting states’ and communities’ responses to gang-related crime and violence and gang activity by youth and adults. OJJDP will award a cooperative agreement to continue the activities of the National Gang Center (NGC), which provides training and technical assistance to OJP-funded programs and communities across the country to address the issues of youth gun and gang violence. NGC tracks current research and trends on gangs and maintains a database of comprehensive information on the development and implementation of effective gang prevention, intervention, and suppression strategies.
OJJDP’s Comprehensive Gang Model (CGM) offers an evidence-based framework for the coordination of multiple data-driven, anti-gang, and violence-reduction strategies to address the impact of serious and violent youth street gang problems. The CGM includes a set of five core strategies.
