Criminal Street Gangs continue to impact nearly every community across the nation. They continue to cause fear, terror and economic instability, and cause a number of challenges for law enforcement and corrections.
This two and one-half day conference will provide participants with a variety of perspectives and techniques that will assist patrol officers, detectives, correctional officers, federal agents, intelligence/crime analysts, prosecutors and probation/parole officers. It will include information on suppression, investigation, identification and prevention. This training will benefit personnel in rural communities as well as large urban cities.
Street gangs continue to expand from urban areas to rural Middle America, and their criminal activities and methods constantly change. The MGIA Missouri Chapter invites you to attend the 2014 Street Gang Training Conference. This year’s tentative topics include:
- Gang Reduction Strategies for Patrol Officers
- Extremist Groups/Sovereign Citizens
