The proposed solutions on how to prevent gang violence in communities are likely to face various objections. Firstly, it would be argued that creation of supportive social structures would require additional funding, hence expensive and costly. To answer this objection, you would argue that nothing comes on a silver plate. Thus, members of the community must pay a price in order to have a community free from gang violence. Therefore, members of the community must incur costs for formulating and implementing appropriate techniques of preventing and controlling gang violence in the community.
Secondly, it would be objected that formulation of appropriate policy networks and provision of security to citizens is a responsibility of the state and federal governments, thus there is no need for engaging members of the community. In order to answer this objection, you would assert that the government must work with the people in order to govern or rule effectively. Thus, members of the community must be actively involved in finding solutions to various challenges and problems that they face.
Thirdly, it would be objected that security agencies rarely share information with third parties, thus community policing would be a one-sided affair. In order to answer this objection, you would argue that the security agencies do not share sensitive information only with third parties. However, this is to the benefit and security of members of the community. Similarly, you would argue that sharing of information between the police and community members would help law enforcement agencies to track gang members who cause violence within communities, hence facilitate prevention and control of gang violence in communities. You would also argue that the security agencies require vital information on gang membership within communities in order to establish the motives of gang violence and provide lasting security solutions, and such information can only be obtained from members of the community. Therefore, cooperation, assistance and participation of members of the community through community policing is fundamental to prevention of gang violence in communities.
