This three-day class offers not only basic, entry-level training, but more advanced gang training for law enforcement agencies and features research- and field-based information tailored for regional applicability. These trainings provide instruction on how to recognize and identify gang members and their insignia; ways to develop sources of information about gang activities within the community and through social media investigative techniques; how to manage confidential gang informants and witnesses; management and policy issues; strategies for suppressing gang activity; and multijurisdictional approaches to gang investigations. These curricula have been developed, tested, and presented throughout the United States. Training modules are taught by experts in the field, all with ten or more years of real-world experience.
