Officer Lindsay Faust of the Raleigh Police Gang Suppression Unit was our speaker at a local Kiwanis meeting. Officer Lindsay did an excellent job of helping educate the members of our club about what is going on in our community with regards to gangs. The key takeaway for us was that when kids grow up with no parents or absentee parents and families in high risk communities, they can be tempted to seek the family bond offered by gangs. Once they head in that direction, it is difficult to separate from that path. Thanks for your time and dedication, Officer Faust!
