In today's society, it has become increasingly difficult for parents to monitor their children's movements 24 hours a day. At varying ages, and often out of necessity, children begin to take on some responsibilities as individuals, when they are expected to function and make decisions without parental supervision. It is important that parents equip their children with the tools that will help them be safe and responsible.
You can find more information on proetcting children on the Web site for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Once found only in large cities, gangs have invaded communities of all sizes across the United States.
Gangs bring fear and violence to neighborhoods, traffic drugs, destroy property and drive out businesses. Gangs can draw young people away from school and into a life of crime and violence. Visit the National Youth Gang Center for more information.
In its most rudimentary form, a gang is a group of individuals, either juvenile or adult, who associate on a continuous basis, have a common purpose, and are involved in delinquent or criminal activity.
