Safe Home Program

The Hanover Park Safe Home Program is an intervention strategy, the goals of which are to identify gang membership or potential gang membership at an early stage, educate parents as to the warning signs of gang involvement, identify resources for parents to use and increase communication between parents and the Police Department. A referral will be made to the Social Worker with the Hanover Park Police Department if officers locate indicators of gang involvement. The Police Social Worker will provide information regarding gang intervention strategies and additional resources for parents. The Social Worker will follow-up with both the juvenile and the parent in individual counseling sessions.
