FBI: Gangs Growing in SouthEast/Charlotte, NC

The FBI published The 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment – Emerging Trends report (pdf version) to examine emerging gang trends and threats posed by criminal gangs to communities throughout the United States. The report is lengthy so I will highlight some of the main points that pertain to the Southeast and Charlotte, NC:
  • Since the last report in 2009, gang membership has grown over 40%
  • In Charlotte, gangs are responsible for more than half of all violent crime
  • Gangs are recruiting younger members than they have in the past
  • Gangs are using social media to recruit members and keep in touch
  • Charlotte, NC has over 1,200 documented gang members
  • Gangs are getting involved in different (new) types of crimes such as prostitution, human trafficking, Identity Theft and money laundering
  • Juvenile gang members are hosting parties and organizing special events which develop into opportunities for recruiting, drugs, sexual exploitation and criminal activity
  • NGIC and NDIC data indicates that, since 2009, gang membership increased most significantly in the Northeast and Southeast regions
