Can Civil Gang Injunctions Change Communities? A Community Assessment of the Impact of Civil Gang Injunctions (2005)

Abstract

This study evaluates the community impact of a locally popular gang intervention strategy, the Civil Gang Injunction, on neighborhood residents. Researchers predicted immediate and long-term effects on residents’ perceptions and experience of crime, gang activity and neighborhood quality. The study results offer guidance for program development for practitioners contemplating use of this strategy.
