Gang Presentations

Washington County Gang Education


The Washington County Juvenile Department and the Washington County Sheriff's Department collaborate services to provide a detailed presentation on gangs. There are several presentations offered to meet the needs of the audience. The types of audiences that we focus on are:  Parents, Schools, Community, High Crime Areas/Neighborhoods, Counselors, and Youth.

Presentation is available in Spanish.

The purpose of the Gang Education Team is to:

  • Educate school aged youth about the dangers of gang involvement.   
  • Increase public awareness/prevention ideas.   
  • Educate parents on gang awareness/prevention ideas.  
  • Address gang awareness in high crime areas.   
  • Provide guidance and community resources to gang-affected youth.  
  • Provide parents with a list of community resources that address gang issues.  
  • Access social opportunities for youth and families.  
  • To encourage communication within community leaders/members.  
  • Provide educators/counselors with appropriate intervention skills when dealing with gang-involved youth.
