“Cleaning Up Gangs”

· Focused deterrence strategies attempt to increase punishment risks faced by violent gangs through the development of new and creative ways of deploying traditional and non-traditional law enforcement tools. In addition to increasing the swiftness and certainty of sanctions, these strategies explicitly communicate incentives and disincentives to deter likely gang offenders from violent behavior.

Of the methods you stated which method do you believe would yield the most success? Justify your response.

Based on your research, describe three (3) interesting points you learned about law enforcement suppression. Next, suggest three (3) ways that law enforcement suppression is sometimes effective when integrated with gang programs. Which method of law enforcement suppression do you believe is most effective?
