McLean Updates Syracuse on Gang Assessment

March 21, 2012 – The Finn Institute’s Associate Director, Sarah McLean, delivered two presentations about the Institute’s assessment of Syracuse gangs today, as part of the further development of a comprehensive anti-gang initiative in that city.  McLean first addressed a group of key institutional stakeholders, and later in the day spoke at a community forum.  Joining her was a representative from the National Youth Gang Center, who also provided training in the Comprehensive Gang Model of the federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.  McLean said, “community partnership is vital to the success of the initiative. So, we were very pleased to have the opportunity to discuss the anti-gang initiative with community members and to hear their perspectives and ideas for strengthening anti-gang efforts in the city”.
