ABSTRACT

Work has consistently revealed that gang members are more likely than nongang members to participate in violent behavior. But research has not analyzed the relationship between the likelihood of gang homicide and the various factors that police report impact gang violence in their community. This is accomplished through analyzing reports provided by law enforcement as part of the National Youth Gang Survey in 2012. The results reveal a significant relationship between multiple factors that police report contribute to violence and gang homicides. The findings inform theoretical explanations for gang violence and have implications for policy effectively addressing gang homicides nationwide.
