The National District Attorneys Association provides prosecutors with the requisite skill set to effectively respond to emerging and on-going gang problems. Our objective is to educate prosecutors about a comprehensive response to gangs, to assist prosecutors in developing and implementing holistic responses to gang violence, and to encourage prosecutors to act as leaders in prevention, intervention, and suppression strategies.
