Gangs:  Richmond Gang Reduction and Intervention Program
richmondgangreduction@oag.state.va.usGRIP PROGRAM IMAGE

The Richmond Gang Reduction and Intervention Program (GRIP) was originally funded through a grant from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention in the amount of $2.5 million. The program, which is administered through this office, is a collaborative effort among the City of Richmond, federal, state, and local partners focusing on a target community. The goal of GRIP is to significantly reduce gang activity in targeted neighborhoods.

Programs are designed to address the full range of personal, family, and community factors that contribute to high levels of juvenile delinquency and gang activity. Young people have the capacity to make better choices if they have better choices available to them. Our commitment to public safety is strengthened by administering prevention and intervention programs prior to the use of necessary suppression efforts.
