Minnesota Community Corrections Association Presents:
Sgt. Chris House,
Minneapolis Police Department
This presentation provides an overview on Hybrid gangs and the problems they generate for law enforcement. The evolution of the Hybrid gangs in the Twin Cities metropolitan area had its beginning on the Minneapolis North Side. These gangs have no real hierarchy or code of conduct unlike the older "traditional" gangs. Major decisions can be made by almost anyone in the gang with the other gang members following suit. There have been documented instances where rival gang members will actually work together in a criminal endeavor to benefit each of their gangs. It is extremely difficult to document and track the Hybrid gang members because they are so loosely organized and are continuously moving between gangs. Investigators have determined that these Hybrid gangs will also change their gang name, which makes it even more difficult for law enforcement to track. They can be as dangerous, if not more dangerous than traditional gangs.
