Gang Intervention Programs in Denmark

In Denmark, in response to violent biker wars, they have set up supportive gang exit contracts for gang members.  While they work with all gang members, the program has shown remarkable success with members of outlaw motorcycle gangs, which have proven in other parts of the world to be a most challenging group of individuals to do intervention work with.  This session will highlight the gang exiting program with some of Denmark’s highest risk populations.
