Question Description

For this week’s assignment, you will write a 2-3 page essay about female gang members. Be sure to address all prompts and cite your sources in APA format. This is worth 80 points, so be thorough and give your best effort.

Most researchers conclude that female gang members make up roughly 10% of all gang members. However, these estimates vary depending upon who collects the data. Female gang members are extremely capable of committing violent criminal acts; however, their motivation and reasons differ from those of their male counterparts (Delaney, 2013).

As research and understanding of female gangs is imperfect or lacking, the criminal justice system would benefit by developing new methods for dealing with the increasing number of female gangs. To be effective, law enforcement officials should first acknowledge the existence of female gangs, and then develop better training for police officers to identify the female gang members they come into contact with. Unfortunately, few police departments have developed programs to specifically deal with female gang members (Delaney, 2013). Please write a 2-3 page paper (not including title and reference pages) that includes the following:

  • Explain female gang members' families and their structures.
  • Describe female gang members' roles and behavioral expectations within the microcosm of the gang.
  • You should include concepts discussed in the book including:
    • Dysfunctional home family.
    • Pregnancy.
    • Starting one's own family.

Cite properly per APA in-text and reference list protocols
