VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – A series of new videos aims to keep young people away from gang life.
Sergeant Lindsey Houghton with the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit says the six videos expose the truths and perils of gangs.
“[They] demythify everything there is about gangs to make it as unappealing as possible to prevent more young men and women from dying on our streets and to prevent more families from having to go through what some families have gone through.”
“They’re extremely raw and emotional,” says Houghton. “They all cover different myths and they feature interviews with parents, police officers, and also features glimpses inside the minds of former gang members who I interviewed.”
The videos will be shown in school and available online.
