How Do I?

Gang Intervention / Exiting

The APD Gang Crime Unit is focused on community involvement and youth intervention to not only target active criminals, but to also encourage and promote awareness about the dangers of gang life with the goal of intervening and discouraging gang involvement.

The GCU is dedicated to the community of Abbotsford and strives to find ways to partner with the community outside of the normal traditional policing methods.   Should you suspect that your child may be involved in either the sale of illegal drugs, or the gang lifestyle, members of the GCU encourage you to allow us the opportunity to visit your family and engage in meaningful conversation that will assist in keeping your children safe.

Examples of Support offered by GCU:

  • Support to address gang exiting, safety planning, and reintegration for the affected person wrapped up in the current gang lifestyle
  • Members of GCU are an extension to your family and will be by your side throughout the entire process as we navigate through the process together
  • Variety of Resources and referrals
  • Counselling support (Families / Affected person)
  • Mentorship
