Tackling the Gang Culture

Time to wake up and tackle gangs epidemic

Police crackdown on gang leaders not enough, CSJ warns

A strategy to remove gang leaders following last year’s riots may have created more violence on the streets of British cities, a major report from the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) has highlighted.

The study, which received widespread media coverage and endorsement, reviews political efforts to tackle gangs a year after the riots.

The paper, Time to Wake Up, also highlights an escalation in the number of school pupils being drawn into gangs with children attending classes wearing rival colours.
