Gang Free Florida Initiative Overview

In 2006, the Florida Gang Investigators Association’s Board of Directors along with recommendations from its membership began developing what will be FGIA’s official proposal for a Statewide Gang Control Strategy. This strategy will encompass all aspects of control and pertain to the following areas:

  • Intelligence
  • Enforcement
  • Suppression
  • Legislative
  • Prosecutorial
  • Prevention
  • Intervention
  • Reentry

To be successful, this strategy will include every aspect of the criminal justice system and the private sector to include but not be limited to:

  • Law Enforcement (local, state and federal)
  • Corrections (local, state and federal)
  • Juvenile Justice (detention and residential)
  • Probation (local, state and juvenile)
  • Statewide Prosecutor’s Offices
  • Prevention Organizations (Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Youth Gang Resource Center, etc.

This will be one of the most aggressive strategies in the country and should lay down the framework for what will be the model for other state’s to follow. The details of each section of this strategy will be proposed to local and state leadership for their review, acceptance and encouraged implementation.

This plan outlines our approach to developing and implementing FGIA’s Florida Gang Control Strategy.
