GA police to receive gang resistance certification

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Fulton County Sheriff's officials say law enforcement representatives from the metro Atlanta region are set to graduate from a program focused on identifying and addressing gang activity.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan says police from several agencies are being certified Wednesday morning in the Gang Resistance Education And Training program.

Flanagan says the program is based on authorities being specially trained to teach students how to make better choices to avoid gang activity and youth violence.

Flanagan says the graduates will be certified by the U.S. Department of Justice and this is the third time the Fulton County Sheriff's office has participated in the program.
