Group meets to keep up pressure on Yonkers gangs
Members of the Yonkers Violence and Gang Prevention Coalition met at the Nepprehan Community Center today to keep up the pressure on gangs in the area.
Just one week ago, authorities conducted a major gang bust in Yonkers. Officials say 63 suspected gang members were arrested.
Coalition leaders say it will take a full-fledged community effort to keep up the momentum. They're urging the police and the public not to become complacent.
Despite the major sweep last week, experts say there are still at least 20 active gangs in Yonkers.
