Title:
Executive Summary: Prototype Models
Subtitle/Series Name:
National Youth Gang Suppression and Intervention Program
Abstract:
The development of the prototype models is the second of four stages (assessment, prototype development, technical assistance, and testing) of a research and development process conducted in cooperation with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency prevention of the Department of Justice to create promising approaches for the reduction of the youth gang problem. The models emphasize secondary rather than primary prevention. They also emphasize the involvement of police, prosecution, judges, probation, corrections, parole, schools, employment, community-based agencies, and a range of grassroots organizations. The framework for the policies and procedures recommended in each of the 12 models is based on (1) two types of gang problems, chronic and emerging; (2) differential strategies of suppression and intervention; and (3) distinctive institutional missions. source
