  • Measurements used:
    • Once gang members are identified the Unit attempts to interrupt the activity through intervention, and suppression.
    • On an average the Unit has contact with 40% of the members in an active gang. Contact can be made through schools, families, probation agents, intervention programs and arrests.

  • Gang incidents have not increased over the past 12 months.
  • Gang-related arrests have increased dramatically (proactive approach)
    • MCPD anticipate a gradual decrease in gang crime over the next year. We have already experienced a positive impact in gang crime with no gang-related homicides since 2010.
  • One of the greatest accomplishments has been the improved relationship between the Montgomery County Public Schools and County Resources such as the Recreation Department, HHS and the Police.
    • These relationships have improved the early identification of at risk youth. One setback has been the reduction of SRO’s which negatively impacts the effectiveness of the Gang Unit in terms of communication and awareness.
  • MCPS Truancy Contact – Mr. Steve Neff
  • Less than 1% of all school population is “truant”
