City of Salinas approves anti-gang plan

Californian | March 29, 2011

The city of Salinas on Tuesday signed off on an ambitious plan to bring youth violence and gangs under control.

The 43-page draft plan, titled “Salinas Comprehensive Strategy for Community-wide Violence Reduction,” was created by Community Alliance for Safety and Peace, a coalition of nonprofits and government officials, in conjunction with the Naval Postgraduate School and nearly two-dozen community meetings.

The plan calls for achieving six objectives to stop gang violence, which includes improving economic conditions, engaging children and youth, stressing the importance of education and stopping the use of drugs and alcohol.

A 10-person Salinas delegation, which includes city, Monterey County and CASP officials, will present the draft at a “Youth Violence Summit” in Washington, D.C., next week.

Salinas was included in the White House’s six-city gang and youth violence pilot program, along with Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Memphis and San Jose.
