Summary
  • This comprehensive guide is meant for parents, teachers, police, and community members who encounter gangs in their daily activities
  • What do blue bandannas, champagne glasses, Los Angeles King Starter jackets, and automobile air fresheners have in common? Unfortunately, very few parents or educators would recognize these as gang signs. From the inner cities to the wealithiest suburbs, street gangs are a deadlly problem in American, and they are growing rapidly. Street Gang Awareness demystifies gang behavior by exposing its secret system of signs and symbols. It not only helps readers determine if a child is involved in a gang, but also offers a range of practical, effective strategies to help protect children and communities from this terrifying menace.--Publisher description
