Gang Cross Outs
Identifying a “Gang House” There are some visual clues that you may have a “gang house” in your neighborhood: • Foot traffic at all hours of the day and night • Teenagers and young adults always “hanging out” and frequent parties, especially on the weekends • Residents seem to wear a lot of a certain type of color • Increase in tagging in the community, particularly near the residence, and subsequent “crossing out” of tags • Possible increase in violence in the community (i. e. : assaults, robberies, car vandalism, fights, etc. ) • Possible increase in drug sales and usage in the community • Intimidation of residents
