Desistance or enforcement:
harnessing local energy to deal with gangs and youth crime
This event took place on 28th October 2015 to demonstrate the value of the EUGANGS programme in bringing agencies and communities together to explore effective practice in tackling youth crime and gangs activity.
Our guest speaker, Joseph Jackson of Wolverhampton Citizens for Change, brought passion and life experience ensuring the discussions were grounded in real issues facing young people and communities in the Black Country. Our other contributors were Amanda Wood (Safe Innovation Projects), Keith Blackburn, Sgt Nick Morton (West Midlands Police).
