In some communities, gang-related activity is prolific. Many gang-involved individuals will at some point be on some form of community supervision (e.g., pretrial, probation, or parole). This course will discuss how individuals become validated as gang-involved and steps community supervision officers should take to prepare for supervising a gang-involved person. Community supervision officers also will learn about supervision practices they can use when a validated gang-involved individual is placed on their caseload.
This activity is approved for 1.75 STC credit hours.
