The Gang Prevention Coalition is a group of community agencies and organizations working in partnership to address gang issues in Mecklenburg County. The coalition’s mission is to partner with the community to eliminate gangs through collaboration, training, and technical assistance. The coalition has adopted the Comprehensive Gang Reduction Model of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention to address the problem of gangs. This approach was drawn after national research and includes components of (1) Primary Prevention; (2) Secondary Prevention; (3) Intervention; (4) Suppression and (5) Reentry. 

Gang of One is the gang prevention and intervention initiative of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department in partnership with local citizens and agencies, as well as local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.  Gang of One’s mission is to prevent youth from joining gangs, support youth being pressured to join gangs, and assist youth in getting out of gangs.
