The New Hanover County School District is trying to educate parents and teachers about gangs. Thursday night marked the first of four gang training sessions. Ashley High School hosted the meeting. Due to the sensitive material presented at the forum, students were not allowed to participate. Detectives Michelle Guarino and Calvin Barnes coordinated the forum. “The reason for this is educate them on gang signs, symbols and things that a student might display at school or at the home,” said New Hanover County Sheriff’s Captain Calvin Barnes. “Its to let parents and teachers be more aware of it so they can better report it and get law enforcement assistance to address the problem.” The next gang training for parents is December 1st at New Hanover High School. Laney and Hoggard will both host the training later in the school year.
