Anti Gang Education Program in Schools
There are many subjects for students to learn in the schools before they move on to the next grade or even graduate. Surprisingly, there's one course that may be added to the cirriculum that could save your child's life.
Gainesville Police Department and the Alachua County School Board are looking to start an anti gang education program called G.R.E.A.T. or Gang Resistance Education and Training. Alachua County has documented ten gangs around Gainesville and law enforcement officials say that number continues to grow. Most consist of what police say are hybrid or national gangs.
Detective James McCollum of The Gainesville Police Department says,"This will teach the students what to look for and how to stay away from the gangs". G-P-D have applied for the grant for the program. They are hoping to have the program in the school system by the next school term for elementary, middle and high schools.
