  • Department of Justice National Gang Threat Assessment 2009: "Predictive NGIC/NDIC intelligence: Criminal activity related to street gangs likely will increase throughout the New England Region. Armed robberies, carjacking, drug trafficking, extortions, and home invasions are likely to increase because of the influx of Bloods, Crips, Latin Kings, and Trinitarios members from neighboring regions." The Federal Bureau of Investigation has opened a gang task force in the City of Manchester under their “Safe Streets” program.
  • While representing less than a third of all youth served annually by OYS, the number of youth and families who seek help for the first time is a key
    statistic for OYS staff to track. During 2009, it is likely that new service requests will increase by 40%. It is important to note that once a family starts to work with OYS, our staff will provide services throughout childhood for that child.
    Since 2002 OYS has seen a 250% increase in new requests for service and has also worked to show a 370% decrease in the number of children that we send to court for CHINS petitions. Our strategy worked by developing a multidisciplinary team in Manchester that carefully reviews each Court referral ‘before’ spending money & time unnecessarily for children who are better served by Manchester’s youth serving community. As a result, the OYS “WYR” model has been recommended for adoption by the State of New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services: Division of Juvenile Justice Service
  • From 2001 to 2008 Manchester has shown a 40% decrease in Juvenile Crime and Court petitions. At the same time, the number of Manchester youth at
    the John H. Sununu Youth Services Center has also decreased. In fact, five years ago one out of every three youth at SYSC was from Manchester. Now, for every ten youth at SYSC one is from Manchester. OYS provides targeted and effective diversion services to make Manchester a safer place.
