Gang Activity on Decline In Colorado Springs
According to an article in the Gazette last month, local police say gang activity is down by 27 percent from the same time in 2014.
The Colorado Springs Police Department believes some of the drop in gang activity to a special gang unit that was formed last January. Another reason could be local gang prevention and intervention organizations and other community outreach programs, such as Hard Knox and Urban Peak.
While gang activity hasn’t disappeared from the Colorado Springs area, its reduction is good news for potential gang victims and families whose children are at risk of joining gangs.
