The Center for Criminal Justice Research at Cal State San Bernardino will host a symposium focusing on gang violence that will explore intelligence-led solutions.

The Gang Violence Symposium will take place from 1 to 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 11 at the Santos Manuel Student Union. The program is free and open to law enforcement professionals, applied researchers, crime and intelligence analysts, and community organizations that deal directly with gang violence.

The symposium will highlight new ways of tracking inter-gang conflict with network analytics. Exploring the impact of civil gang injunctions and focused policing strategies, this symposium will have something of interest to all criminal justice practitioners, organizers said.

Advance registration is requested and may be done online at the symposium’s EventBrite webpage at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/gang-violence-symposium-tickets-57756377881.

The event will be organized around two panels:

• Investigating targeted policing strategies using network analytics, the first panel showcases the web of gang violence in Los Angeles and Long Beach.

• Aiming a spotlight on civil gang injunctions (CGIs), the second panel will investigate what is known about how gang violence changes in response to CGIs, rivalries and alliances, and spatial proximity. The economic impact is also examined.

After reviewing current research, a moderated panel of leading experts will explore intelligence-led solutions. The symposium promises to be an open dialogue about targeted strategies, which could be used to weaken the web of violence and improve community safety across the greater Los Angeles metropolitan region.
