Drugs, Gangs, and Violence: What is the City's Plan?: Update Gangs Operating in Central Virginia

From: The Virginia Gang Investigator’s Association

The Virginia Gang Investigator’s Association on behalf of the National Alliance of Gang Investigators recently completed a gang threat assessment for the State of Virginia. This was made possible by a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice and Bureau of Justice Assessment. We shared in this collaboration with the FBI, the National Drug Intelligence Center, the National Youth Gang Center and the Institute for Intergovernmental Research. In order to complete this, surveys were sent to Virginia law enforcement agencies in localities with an estimated population of 50,000 residents or more. They were then collected and forward to the NAGIA and then to the FBI.

These are the gangs identified as operating in the Central Virginia Area:

18th Street
Almighty P Stone Nation
Gangsta Disciples
Latin Kings Black
Gangster Disciples
Nortenos –14
Hells Angels
OMG Pagans
OMG Banditos
OMG Outlaws
OMG Skinheads
Vice Lords
37 Home Grown Gangs
