U.S. Attorney's Gang Issues Working Group

The U.S. Attorney’s Gang Issues Working Group (GIWG) was formed in response to law enforcement concerns expressed during a listening tour by U.S. Attorney Kacavas in the fall of 2009.  At that time, it was apparent that many of our communities were suffering from a burgeoning youth and street gang problem influenced largely by national and regional gangs outside the State of New Hampshire.  On February 4, 2010, the inaugural meeting of the GIWG was hosted by the United States Attorney’s Office (USAO) in order to bring relevant law enforcement agencies together to develop a statewide strategic plan to combat this alarming trend.  The inaugural meeting was attended by representatives from law enforcement agencies in Manchester, Nashua, Salem, Concord, Keene, Dover, Rochester, Portsmouth, Somersworth, Hampton, Lowell (MA), Lawrence (MA), N.H. State Police, and the FBI.
