Facilitated by the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team (SGET), this presentation shares the true story of gang life in Surrey and its consequences, shattering the glamourized image of gangs. Shattering the Image aims to give the hard facts on gangs, so adults know how to talk to kids about these topics and identify warning signs.
