Addressing Gang Violence Through the Courts and on the Streets

Friday, November 12, 2010

For decades, cities across the country have tried a variety of approaches to reduce gang violence. Recently, Long Beach, California has implemented court-ordered civil injunctions, allowing law enforcement to arrest known gang members in particular neighborhoods for minor infractions. These infractions include wearing gang colors, carrying a cell phone in a car, or leaving the house after 8 p.m. Is it working? 

Long Beach City Prosecutor Doug Haubert and Renato Ramos, who works with gang members in Phoenix, Ariz., join us to discuss their cities' efforts to reduce gang violence.
