"Gangs and groups of individuals" Gang Activity Tip by QueenBee75

Gang Activity, Chicago: 9 reviews and 0 photos

Some of the neighborhoods around Chicago will have a high concentration of gang activity and if you're not experienced in knowing about this don't visit the area. Keeping together as a group is wise because gang members have been known to attack people who havent done a thing to them as a means to exacerbate their threatening behavior. If you see a group of teens or young adults preferably late teens early 20s standing around places like a liquor store or corner/convenience stores call the police because this also helps them keep the streets clear of unwanted loitering and congregating. Make sure you inform the police of what street you're on or intersection. If the police get enough complaints about a certain street or intersection that has a lot of loitering and congregating of gang members they'll come and sweep the street and make arrests. Being safe is better than being sorry.
