Walla Walla has a growing number of gang members (estimates are between 300 - 500) and an increase in gang activity.

How to tell if your child might be affiliated with a gang. Kids join gangs:

  • to belong to a group
  • for excitement
  • for protection
  • to earn money
  • to be with friends

Parents are the first line of defense. It is the responsibility of every parent to let their child know that they are loved and that you are concerned about their welfare.

If you suspect that your child may have joined a gang and need assistance, contact the WWPD crime prevention office at 509-525-3342.
