Welcome to the Mayor’s Gang Prevention Task Force website. As you navigate through this information you will gain a better understanding of our community’s goal to reduce gang violence in Santa Rosa. Here you will find a comprehensive network of gang prevention and intervention resources as well as information on how you can become involved to help strengthen our effort to reclaim our youth for their families, school, community and future. 

We have come to understand that gang violence is a community-wide issue that requires a community-wide response. Today we have a model, comprehensive, community action plan to reduce gang violence through a strong prevention, intervention and enforcement effort.

True gang prevention is more than a program; it is people like you who respond to the need and are filling to learn how to become involved. I hope that you will continue to visit this site where you will see a new Face of Gang Prevention and read the story behind the face. It may be one of our street outreach workers working with gang impacted youth, or it could be a volunteer working as a tutor in an after school program.  It could also be a youth who is willing to tell you their story about how they were able to turn their life around and get out of the clutches of the gang life style.

Me da mucho gusto darle la bienvenida a la nueva página electrónica del Equipo de Prevención de Pandillas del Alcalde. Cuando usted navega a través de esta información, obtiene un mejor entendimiento de la meta de nuestra comunidad para reducir la violencia de las pandillas en Santa Rosa. Aquí encontrará una amplia red de prevención de pandillas y recursos de intervención, así como información sobre cómo usted puede participar para ayudar a fortalecer nuestros esfuerzos y para rescatar a nuestra juventud para sus familias, las escuelas, la comunidad y el futuro. 

Hemos llegado a comprender que la violencia de las pandillas es un problema que afecta a toda la comunidad la cual requiere una respuesta de toda la comunidad.  Hoy tenemos un modelo comprensivo y comunitario con un amplio plan de acción para reducir la violencia de las pandillas a través de una fuerte prevención y esfuerzos de las autoridades.

La verdadera prevención de pandillas es más que un programa, son personas como usted que responden a las neccesidades y están dispuestos a aprender cómo participar.  Espero que usted continúe visitando este sitio donde podremos ver una nueva cara de Prevención de Pandillas y leer historias detrás de la cara.  Puede ser uno de nuestros agentes de extensión de calle que trabajan con jóvenes afectados por pandillas, o puede ser un voluntario trabajando como profesor en un programa despuésto a decircle su historia sobre la forma en que fueron capaces de girar su vida alrededor y salir de las garas de las pandillas y de su estilo de vida.
