Yes, I have met a member of the Vatos Locos, a hispanic gang in Lake Worth. Also, in West Palm Beach I have seen actual gang activity near Palm Beach Lakes blvd. and of course there was the infamous mall shooting at Boynton Beach last Christmas Eve. Plus there's shootings, killings, stabbings, etc. Gang activity is very much alive here. Unless of course you live in a wealthy area.

Default Security Threat Groups In Florida

Gangs in Florida

Every state and major city in the United States is plagued with local, loosely structured, street gangs that are mainly motivated by drug sales. Historically, disruptive incidents in our prisons have been based on the geographic origins of the inmates involved (e.g., Miami gang inmates vs. Tampa gang inmates).

These local groups form based on common interests and a sense of loyalty to individuals from their city, neighborhood, street, or housing complex. They adopt generic names such as Players, Posse, Crew, Mafia, Gang, and Bad Boys and attach their particular street or avenue name to it.

Although they are loosely structured and tend to conduct their illegal activities in a specific location, they are extremely violent and develop bitter blood rivalries.

Often the group evolves, and adopts an alliance with a national street gang such as the Bloods, Crips, or Chicago-based Folk Nation and People Nation sets and use their symbols and identifiers. This graduation in gang involvement often occurs in county jails, prisons, and juvenile facilities.

This increases the importance of tracking the development of gang membership while inmates are in custody. Tracking enables DC to notify local law enforcement of new members or of any changes in a member's affiliation.

Hundreds of these local gangs have been identified in every city from Pensacola to the Florida Keys. This includes small rural towns, upper middle-class neighborhoods, schools, and other areas where we tend to deny gang existence.

Here is a list of gangs/security threat groups we have encountered within the Department of Corrections:

What do you mean by " wealthy area".

Sorry but since the prices of homes are so out of whack with reality right now, it is hard to distinguish what wealthy is anymore.

Five years ago if you said you lived in a 200,000 home you were considered to have quite a nice home (thus wealthy) These days 200,000 gets you nothing much special and now you are not so "wealthy".

We are only moving this summer and are considering Wellington, and Jupiter. But I noticed that both of those towns have gangs so I guess they are not quite "wealthy" enough??

I live in a city of 3 million and have yet to see "a gang" so I am a bit hesitant and skeptical at the same time. I have seen a lot of graffiti on the fences along the freeways but never actually seen any "gangs".

We have Hell's angels and Los Brovos, but that type of criminal activity do not hang around the 7"Eleven at night, if you know what I mean.

I also lived in Nassau where you need razor wire around the top of your fence and electric gates around your property for protection with a security system, cameras and the Embassy security personnel coming by four times a day to check on things.

In the wealthier communities of Jupiter, Wellington, etc., the most dangerous gangs you'll have chance to meet up with are home owner's associations!!!

After reading that list, how bad must Fort Lauderdale be when even gangs don't want to live here.

They avoid the area for a reason or is their place to visit and enjoy life without the danger of attacks from other gangs. Can be the designated neutral zone; no fights, no action, just a place to enjoy without fear.

Do you know of any action in FortL?
