Fighting Gang Violence Leveraging Social Media

Violence in urban and suburban neighborhoods, particularly in minority communities and those of limited socioeconomic means, has been a concern for decades. With the dominance and growing impact of social media, gang violence is now instigated through these virtual social spaces, resulting in criminal acts such as shootings. Gangs make their mark by provoking violence and threats via social media platforms. Gang affiliates exploit their online presence to promote gang identity and gain notoriety.

Gang members are extremely active online, leaving digital footprints that can be traced and used in criminal investigations. This allows law enforcement agencies to harness data collected from social media to identify gang members and their planned actions to prevent crime.
