OJJDP Gang Prevention Model

The summit talks were structured around a recommended gang-prevention model created by the U.S. Department of Justice. This model offers a structure for coordinating prevention and intervention programs by government and community groups. While other jurisdictions across the country use this model, Fairfax County is one of the first in the region to use it.
