In an effort to educate residents about the negative impacts of gangs, the City of Tulare and Tulare County will host the Tulare Gang Awareness Event, scheduled for October 25th.
The goal is to educate the public on gang prevention and suppression strategies, community safety, and how residents can get involved in combating gang activity.
"Collaboration between all partners is a must in order to inform and help educate residents about the gang presence and impacts upon our community," said District Two Supervisor Pete Vander Poel. "Knowledge is power. This event should give parents and youth the tools to fight gangs and gang influences."
The forum is scheduled 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
