Gang Violence Prevention: Los Angeles Fights Fire with Fire

The California city, known for its organized crime infestation, has created a new academy that will be in charge of training interventionists and overseeing gang violence prevention. Los Angeles has over 400 criminal groups and currently spends $26 million a year in fighting them.

The problem the city has been having is disorganization and corruption within its crime fighting units. Up until this year, L.A.’s anti-crime effort has been headed up by T.W.O., an organization that was recently terminated because it was unable to account for the $26 million in funding it received last year according to rumors.

The new Intervention and Training Academy has already taken its first 100 recruits to train for gang violence prevention. Los Angeles will be spending another $200,000 to finish the facility, which will train young officers and former gang members to obstruct the methods of organized crime.

Workers currently on the ground will also be trained by the academy. Many of them are former members of crime groups and do not have adequate knowledge of the legal system. Relief is the standard response.
