Shattering the Image Anti-Gang Presentation

Shattering the Image

Shattering the Image is an anti-gang presentation that is tailor-made for Surrey youth, parents, educators and community groups.

Inspired by the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit’s End Gang Life program, Shattering the Image was developed by the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team (SGET) when the team identified a need for gang related information that was specific to Surrey.

Shattering the Image is made up of two modules that shatter the glamourized image of gangs, and provide youth with valuable information on making positive choices to avoid the gang lifestyle. Both modules are facilitated by SGET members and can be adapted to suit both youth and adult audiences.

Understanding Gangs Module – This presentation shares the true story of gang life in Surrey and its consequences. SGET officers talk about the history of gangs and drug trafficking in Surrey, the dangers of dial-a-doping, and how social media is used to glamourize gang life and recruit youth.

Mentorship & Leadership Module – This module builds upon the learnings of the Understanding Gangs Module and focuses on the value of mentorship and leadership and the importance of positive role models for youth. One SGET officer shares his story of growing up in Surrey and how one mentor impacted his life back in high school and today.

Shattering the Image aims to give the hard facts on gangs and drugs so Surrey youth are equipped to make better choices, and adults know how to talk to kids about these topics and identify warning signs.

The Surrey RCMP is committed to a long-term strategy to address the issue of youth criminal involvement by promoting positive choices for kids and accessible support and guidance to parents.
