Attorney General Derek Schmidt is launching a new initiative aimed at educating the public about the warning signs of gang activity in Kansas.

During a statewide tour that began Wednesday, Schmidt announced a new web site and partnership with law enforcement to reduce the number of gangs, gang members and criminal activity.

The materials include the warning signs that a youth might be involved with a gang or being recruited by a gang. Those signs include tattoos, bruising, using unusual hand signs or language or a change in behavior.

Schmidt says community awareness and education can help identify if gang activity is occurring and how to contact law enforcement for assistance. The online materials are available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese.
