Gang Recruitment Locations
Let's focus on the most common recruitment locations we see throughout the United States and around the world.
Gang recruitment is popular at your local schools because many schools do not address the gang presence.
There is no better place for a gang to recruit their next member than inside a juvenile justice or correctional facility.
This may sound out of place but it's a place where there is an abundance of kids and the parents are not engaged or in fear of a threat.
There are a lot of kids usually without parental control where peer pressure can play a role.
Another key area where there are a lot of kids, little parental involvement and a lot of egos and peer pressure.
The mall has become a popular hangout for both gangs and non-affiliated youth making it a perfect place to seek new members.
With an internet connection, gang organizations can extend the audience for cyberbanging, recruiting, or online gang activity to thousands of potential gang members.
News Articles About Gang Recruitment
MARYLAND - “Have we seen some recent activity and some more violent activity? Yes. Particularly in the last quarter of last year,” said County Police Capt. Paul Liquorie, director of the Special Investigations Division, who met with the group Safe Silver Spring Thursday night.
The county saw a spike in gang-related murders late last year. There were eight gang-related deaths in Montgomery County last year, up from one in 2014. One victim was just 15.
“We’re seeing younger and younger recruitment,” Liquorie said.
“Social media plays a big role in this, whether it’s identification or recruitment.”
CANADA - A lot of people who live in neighbourhoods that are hot spots for gangs are newcomers to Canada and it is their children who are often targeted for recruitment, said Waddell.
