Fayetteville hosting gang training conference


FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) -- Cumberland County authorities are
getting together with other law enforcement agencies in North
Carolina to educate themselves on how to handle gangs.

Sheriff Earl Butler is hosting a conference in Fayetteville
Monday on gang training. It's part of a series of lectures intended
to address North Carolina's gang issues.

Organizers say attendees at the eight-day conference are
learning effective ways to investigate gangs and how to supervise a
gang unit.

The conference is being taught by the North Carolina Gang
Investigators Association. Members of the Regional Organized Crime
Information Center are helping host the gathering.
