Annotation: The nature of Asian gangs and the future impact of their mobility on law enforcement were examined to encourage police agencies to develop a model strategic plan and a transition management plan to address this problem in the future.
Abstract: The research focused on the differences between turf- oriented gangs and the mobile Asian gangs. The analysis indicated that Asian gangs are transient criminal enterprises that target Asian communities throughout the country as well as internationally. Futures forecasting methods were used to identify current trends and projected events. Results revealed the need for a multiagency approach to address the issue. A model is presented that involves the assignment of probation officers and deputy district attorneys to police agencies to concentrate on targeted gang members. In the model, computer technology augments gang tracking efforts and interagency communication. The discussion also notes the need to address issues of constitutional rights. Figures, chart, reference notes, appended lists of trends and events, and 28 references
