Gang Prosecution Symposium

Gang Prosecution Symposium
This dual-track seminar is geared toward gang prosecutors and investigators of all levels. While general session topics will focus on issues germane to attendees of all gang prosecution experience levels, the two tracks will be divided into beginning- and advanced-level topics. The beginning-level topics will be geared toward those new to gang prosecutions, providing a basic understanding of gang-related crimes and the intricacies of trying gang cases. The advanced-level topics will focus on issues more suited to experienced gang prosecutors and investigators.
