Lincoln forum to discuss gang activity

Concerned over several violent assaults in recent weeks, the city of Lincoln has scheduled a town forum to discuss the growing problem of gangs.

The forum will be at 7 p.m. April 30 at the Lincoln High School Theatre, 790 J St. There is no admission charge and reservations are not needed.

More details from Art Campos:

Featured speakers will include Lincoln Police Chief Brian Vizzusi, Lt. David Ibarra and Esther Mota, who a member of a gang-prevention task force in San Jose.

Discussion topics will include why children get into gangs, the warning signs, graffiti and how to prevent a child from joining a gang. A question-and-answer session will follow, and Spanish translation will be made available.

Elisa Herrera, a spokeswoman for the forum, said Mota will talk about San Jose's problem with gangs and what the city is doing to stem such activity.

"She will identify what Lincoln may be able to do to ensure that it does not become a gang hub," Herrera said in an e-mail to The Bee.
