ZERO TOLERANCE

Zero Tolerance on Graffiti
1. Report--File a Report Immediately
2. Record--Take a Picture of the Graffiti
3. Remove--Clean it up

Graffiti marks gang territory. Left in place it can incite gang violence.

GANG COMMUNICATION

Gang Communication
Youths in gangs communicate in many secret ways, most commonly using coded hand gestures referred to as "stacking". This silent messaging involves rapid hand movements forming both letters and numbers.

NATIONS VS. SETS

Nations Versus Sets
Gangs have organized structures similar to government. "Nations" are equivalent to "States". "Sets" are similar to cities. "Sub-Sets" are like counties. All under one gang umbrella.

GANGS: THE "OTHER" FAMILY

Gang activity is a growing problem for the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ).
To be stopped, it must first be recognized. Whether it is graffiti tagging on buildings, an upsurge in resident contraband, or the motive behind youth-on-youth violence, signs of gang presence appear daily in our facilities and among our youth.

The power of gangs is generated from scare tactics and failure to recognize the warning signs of gang activity. That is how gangs become a serious risk to the safety, security, and well-being of DJJ residents, staff, and the public. Through education, we can help de-escalate Georgia's growing gang violence problem.
