As gang violence continues to rise across the country and the world, police departments, prosecutors, and community members are seeking new methods to reduce the spread of gang-related criminal activity. Civil gang injunctions have become a growing feature of crime control programs in several states across the nation. Gang Injunctions and Abatement: Using Civil Remedies to Curb Gang-Related Crimes examines the effectiveness of this strategy and explores the accompanying constitutional controversies related to freedom of speech, assembly, and other rights. Questions raised by this thought-provoking volume include: What are the costs of gang violence to society? Do civil remedies curb violence in the communities where they are implemented? What factors make a given injunction or abatement more or less effective? What legal and policy issues stand in the way of gang injunctions and abatement? Providing step-by-step instructions on how to establish a successful injunction and abatement program, the book presents comprehensive research on the theoretical basis for the strategy. It includes a legal and chronological progression of actual cases and their outcomes, describing weaknesses and successes in various programs. Supplying succinct guidelines from lessons learned, the book enables prosecutors, police agencies, and the public to take steps toward eradicating gang activities in their communities.

When properly conducted, risk analysis enlightens, informs, and illuminates, helping management organize their thinking into properly prioritized, cost-effective action. Poor analysis, on the other hand, usually results in vague programs with no clear direction and no metrics for measurement. Although there is plenty of information on risk analysis, it is rare to find a book that explains this highly complex subject with such startling clarity. Very few, if any, focus on the art of critical thinking and how to best apply it to the task of risk analysis. The first comprehensive resource to explain how to evaluate the appropriateness of countermeasures, from a cost-effectiveness perspective, Risk Analysis and Security Countermeasure Selection details the entire risk analysis process in language that is easy to understand. It guides readers from basic principles to complex processes in a step-by-step fashion, evaluating DHS–approved risk assessment methods, including CARVER, API/NPRA, RAMCAP, and various Sandia methodologies. Using numerous case illustrations, the text clearly explains the five core principles of the risk analysis lifecycle—determining assets, threats, vulnerabilities, risks, and countermeasures. It also supplies readers with a completely adaptable graphic risk analysis tool that is simple to use, can be applied in public or private industries, and works with all DHS–approved methods. This reader-friendly guide provides the tools and insight needed to effectively analyze risks and secure facilities in a broad range of industries, including DHS designated critical infrastructure in the chemical, transportation, energy, telecommunications, and public health sectors.

Specifically, the text addresses: street gangs (Los Angeles- and Chicago-based/influenced gangs, Canadian Aboriginal gangs, and the international super street gangs such as MS 13 and the 18th Street Gang); prison gangs (including the Mexican Mafia, Aryan Brotherhood, and Public Enemy Number 1); outlaw motorcycle gangs; and drug-trafficking organizations.North American Criminal Gangs documents that American-based motorcycle gangs, such as the Hells Angels, Bandidos, Outlaws, Mongols, and Vagos have expanded their criminal networks internationally, including Europe, Canada and Mexico. The text provides ample photos and images that allow the reader to see the gangs' symbols and other identifiers.
