Sureño Gangs in America (1 Day Class)

From their origin in the streets of Los Angeles and other parts of Southern California, the Sureño gang population has spread to every region of the country and beyond.  Generations-old gangs such as Florencia, Eighteenth Street, Mara Salvatrucha, and many others now impact criminal activities across the country.  Students of this class will learn to:

  • Understand the origins of the Sureño movement
  • Understand the influence of the Mexican Mafia on Latino Criminal Gangs
  • Identify the categories of Sureño gangs and the indicators of their activities
  • Recognize the relationships between cartels, organized crime groups, and Sureños
  • Much more!

The wide-reaching effects of Sureño gangs touch every region of the United States and bring significant crime to the areas to which they expand.  This course is a must for anyone who works in federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement, correctional officers, parole and probation, prosecutors, and intelligence personnel.
