Shattering the Image Anti-Gang Presentation That Is Tailor-Made For Surrey Youth

Darpan News Desk, 04 Sep, 2019 07:17 PM

    Shattering the Image is an anti-gang presentation that is tailor-made for Surrey youth, parents, educators and community groups.

     

    Facilitated by the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team (SGET), this presentation shares the true story of gang life in Surrey and its consequences, shattering the glamourized image of gangs.

     

    Adapted from the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit’s popular End Gang Life program, Shattering the Image talks about the history of gangs and drug trafficking in Surrey, current trends in the gang landscape, and local youth who got caught up in this lifestyle with tragic results.

     

    SGET officers also share real stories about the dangers of dial-a-doping along with information on how social media is used to glamourize gang life and recruit youth, often at a very young age.

     
     

    Shattering the Image aims to give the hard facts on gangs and drugs so Surrey youth are equipped to make better choices, and adults know how to talk to kids about these topics and identify warning signs.

     

    The Surrey RCMP is committed to a long-term strategy to address the issue of youth criminal involvement by promoting positive choices for kids and accessible support and guidance to parents.
