Assistance to Cities

  • California Cities Gang Prevention Network (2007-12)

    NLC and the National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD) have initiated a network of 13 major cities in California to combat gang violence and victimization. The California Cities Gang Prevention Network, the first of its kind in the nation, focuses on building broad-based, cross-system teams to develop successful policies and practices that interweave prevention, intervention, enforcement and a community's "moral voice" as an alternative to prison-only solutions.
