Abstract (Summary)

The main purpose of this thesis was to provide a substantial, inclusive policy analysis of the California Street Terrorism Enforcement and Prevention Act of 1988, which will include the strengths and weaknesses, and the relevance to social work practice.

Results of this study were compiled from secondary data that were used to show gang enforcement law has made an impact on the community to stop organized crime. This was done through community-level services, macro-based programs, and policies. However, the author's findings have concluded that even though large amounts of effort have been set forward to stop organized crime, all the programs installed failed when measured for long-term efficiency. David Gil's policy analysis framework was utilized.

Social workers can help policy makers make adequate policies and programs that will have the community fight against organized crime by advocating for social reform on both on the local and community level.
