Welcome to the official NYGIA website!




The New York Gang Investigators Association was established in 2006 by criminal justice professionals who recognized the importance of sharing information and working with social service agencies, community-based organizations and the education system to impact the spread of gangsBy bringing together those that are actively involved in the investigation, prosecution, suppression, intervention and prevention of criminal street gangs, prison gangs and extremist groups and their affiliations, we provide a venue for collaboration and communication across disciplines.

We work in partnership with fellow gang investigators and law enforcement associations throughout the world to develop anti-gang strategies in the areas of gang prevention, gang intervention, gang enforcement, gang suppression, gang member rehabilitation and gang member re-entry into mainstream society.

A Gang Free New York
In 2007, the New York Gang Investigators Association’s Board of Directors along with recommendations from its membership began developing NYGIA’s official proposal for a Statewide Gang Control Strategy. This strategy will encompass all aspects of control and pertain to the following areas:

* Information Sharing
* Suppression
* Legislation
* Prosecution
* Prevention
* Intervention
* Reentry

To be successful, this strategy will include every aspect of the criminal justice system and the private sector to include, but not be limited to, the following:

* Law Enforcement (local, state and federal)
* Corrections (local, state and federal)
* Juvenile Justice (detention and residential)
* Probation (local, state and juvenile)
* Statewide District Attorney’s Offices
* Prevention Organizations 
- (Boys & Girls Clubs of America, YMCAs, Why Try?, Power of Peace, other CBOs, etc)
* Schools
