AG Harvey to Announce Results of Comprehensive Survey on Street Gangs
Takes Place at Noon, Thursday, June 30, 2005

Attorney General Peter C. Harvey will announce and discuss the results of a 2004 State Police survey on street gang activity that indicates, through statistical and anecdotal evidence, that gang activity in New Jersey is on the rise, including in suburban municipalities often perceived to be untouched by gang presence. Conducted by the State Police Gang Bureau and Analytical Support Unit, the survey is based on responses by 91 percent of the state’s 479 full-time municipal police departments, and is the most comprehensive law enforcement study of the street gang problem in New Jersey to date.
