In the 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment estimated 33,000 gangs representing some 1.4 million “documented” gang members reported by law enforcement agencies in the United States. That number is up from approximately 1.0 million representing some 20,000 gangs in 2009.
Gangs can be identified in all 50 states and D.C. with a national average of 48% of all violent crime being attributed to criminal street gangs with that percentage reaching as high as 90% in several cities nationwide.
Larger OMGs have established new chapters and have attracted many new members. The surge in membership has incited clashes for geographic dominance, which has created higher levels of violence.
OMGs continue to engage in all types of violent crimes to include: weapons possession, threats and intimidation, assault, arson, extortion, and drug trafficking.
