2009 AARIN Symposium: Gangs

Publication Date: 
May 2009

Preliminary findings from the currently deployed AARIN Gang addenda were presented. The Gang Addendum asks all respondents about how gangs and gang activity affects their neighborhood, and whether they have been the victim of a gang-related crime. The remainder of the instrument collects detailed information about the make-up of the gang, the criminal activity of its members, the organizational structure, membership initiation and desistance, and gang and gang member cohesion characteristics for all respondents reporting current or former membership.
