WICHITA – (May 22, 2014) – A new online video series will help parents, teachers and community members identify the signs of gang involvement, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced yesterday at the Midwest Law Enforcement Conference on Gangs and Drugs in Wichita.
The video series, part of the attorney general’s Gang Free Kansas initiative, will feature topics such as identifying gang tattoos, symbols and colors and other signs of gang involvement.
“A major goal of the Gang Free Kansas initiative is to increase public awareness of gang activity,” Schmidt said. “These online videos will help parents, teachers and community members identify the warning signs of gang involvement.”
The videos will be posted to the Gang Free Kansas website, www.GangFreeKansas.org. The first video features Topeka Police Department Corporal Ruben Salamanca explaining common gang tattoos. Other videos will be posted as they are produced and become available.
The Gang Free Kansas initiative was launched by Attorney General Schmidt’s office in 2012 in cooperation with law enforcement agencies from across the state.
