Spokane COPS and the Spokane Violent Crime Task Force will be holding a gang awareness workshop called “Gang Awareness and Strategies for the Community” on two separate occasions: Tuesday, October 8 and 15. The first will be held at the Southside Senior Center (3151 E 27th) [map]; the second will be held at the Messiah Lutheran Church (4202 N Belt) [map]. Both start at 6pm and run until 8pm.
The event invites participants to come and learn about smart, realistic and positive ways to address gang problems and the allure they might have with teens and young adults.
The Spokane Police Department recommends the presentation to anyone who working with children under 20 years of age or their families. Gangs are a community problem and therefore require a community solution — that is, a collaborative approach of intervention, prevention and suppression.
