Civil gang abatement is an innovative remedy employing civil
injunctions to combat public nuisance activity by gangs. This
strategy has been promoted as a problem-oriented response to gang
problems. Allan examines whether the process of acquiring a gang
injunction incorporates the primary dimensions of problem-oriented
responses: flexibility and community involvement. Flexibility is
evident in the even distribution of initiatives among three
categories high-drug, high-crime, and high-disorder. Evidence of
community involvement is weak, due to the lack of community
organizations in gang-plagued neighborhoods, the low-profile nature
of the initiatives, and the potential for retaliation against
participants. Although the expectation for community involvement in
gang injunction initiatives should be tempered, civil gang
abatement is an appropriate approach to neighborhood gang problems.
