Part 3:
What the Justice System Could Do

Typical goals of an anti-gang program, of which prosecution is a part, are to reduce the incidence or prevalence of youth gang crime and to increase the capacity of gang or gang-prone youth to obtain and hold jobs or succeed in school. At the same time, the anti-gang program strives to protect and benefit the community, to accomplish these ends without compromising the civil liberties of law-abiding community members, to enhance the community's control over its own destiny, and to increase the community's perception of safety.
