Live Town Hall Thursday: What Can We Do About Gangs?

Live Town Hall Thursday: What Can We Do About Gangs?

What can the Fresno area do about gangs and the violence they bring to our communities?

After the senseless killing of little Janessa Ramirez, that's the question a lot of people are asking.

KMPH Fox26 News is working with community groups and the Fresno Police Gang Task Force to put together a town hall meeting on gangs Thursday at 7:00 p.m.

You can watch it live on the Central Valley's CW KFRE 59 or streaming online on KMPH.com.

Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims, Pastor B.T. Lewis from Rising Star Missionary Baptist Church, and outreach worker Ernie Rodriguez will lead our discussion.

KMPH Fox26 News Anchor Monty Torres will be the moderator and dozens of gang outreach workers and former gang members will be in the audience and will answer and ask questions of the panel.

Scam Alert: DMV Warning To Driver License Applicants

The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is reminding DMV customers to avoid scams involving driver license applications, such as efforts to charge for services that DMV offers for free.

“Paying someone who promises to speed up the process of obtaining a California driver license will only waste your time and money,” said DMV Director Jean Shiomoto. “It is easy to get a new driver license by making a free appointment at your local DMV office, so do not waste your money paying anyone to help you.”

Assembly Bill 60 (AB 60) allows the DMV to issue a California driver license, regardless of immigration status, to those who can prove identity and California residency. Applicants must also meet all other qualifications for obtaining a driver license, including passing a written test, vision test, and behind-the-wheel exam. DMV will begin issuing driver licenses under AB 60 on January 2, 2015. The only necessary fee is $33 payable to DMV.
