Abstract

Once inside a gang, can people leave? If so, what steps are taken to exit a gang, and at what costs? This chapter examines a range of issues related to disengaging from gangs, reviewing the current state of knowledge on a topic that has begun to garner attention in the research community that matches the interests of the practitioner community. Disengaging from gangs is conceptualized within a life-course framework. This chapter details findings from studies examining changes in criminal offending and the motives and methods for leaving gangs. Based on these studies, along with preliminary findings from an ongoing study of gang disengagement, this chapter offers several key conclusions for practice.
