This book explores the policies and practices of comprehensive community efforts to reduce gang and youth violence through a specific conceptual framework, the Comprehensive Gang Model. Tailored gang reduction strategies rooted in this framework and in communities' ecological constitutions are showcased throughout the book using case study methodology. The results of these investigations have relevant implications for scholars, learners, and practitioners who seek to address gang violence using customized responses.
