NY to spend $18.5M to stop gang recruitment on Long Island

ALBNY, N.Y. — New York state will spend $18.5 million on efforts to disrupt gang recruitment on Long Island.

The money is included in the state’s new $168.3 billion budget, passed by lawmakers late last month.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo highlighted the funds during a trip to Suffolk County Wednesday.

The money will support anti-gang initiatives by local law enforcement, as well as after-school programs and youth job training intended to discourage teens from joining a gang.
