The Special Programs Division of the Correctional Management Institute of Texas (CMIT) is pleased to announce Gangs Program, to be held July 29-31, 2008, in Austin, TX. This year's program will feature a former gang member who has since become a law enforcement officer, a 15-year veteran of a white supremacist group who now gives the inside story of that movement, a gangs investigator who will present on black gangs and juvenile issues, a Security Threat Group specialist from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice who will discuss gang activities and tattoos in prison and how they impact the community outside prison, and a brief session on the activities of the Russian Mafia in Texas. It is critical to understand the forces at work on those susceptible to gang influence. For that reason, a look at the telltale signs of gang membership, particularly among high school students as well as females, will be explored. NOTE: 4 PARTICIPANTS FROM A SINGLE AGENCY MAY ATTEND THIS TRAINING FOR THE PRICE OF 3.
