    Gang violence is a fast-growing East Multnomah County issue threatening Gresham’s livability and requiring stepped-up, collaborative measures to address the problem. 

    A balance of prevention, intervention and suppression strategies is the only way any community has ever been able to curb the growth of gangs. 

    Gangs aren't new to Gresham. What is new:

    • Growth of gang membership
    • Increasing violence
    • Spreading gang activity into all parts of Gresham

    Gresham's comprehensive approach

    The City is collaborating with a variety of regional partners to implement a coordinated and comprehensive approach to target the root causes of gang involvement in Gresham.
