The Dallas Police Department Gang Unit has the responsibility of documenting and tracking gang activity within the City of Dallas.
As a parent, there is a lot that you can do to keep your children from joining gangs.
Many gang members say they joined because the gang offered them support, caring, and a sense of order and purpose. The odds are that the better you meet these needs, the less need your children will see for gangs.
Talk to your kids about your disapproval of gangs and that you do not want to see them hurt. Let your child know you will help them with whatever problem that arises and family members do not keep secrets from each other.
