Fifty Youth Gangs in The Hague

Fifty youth gangs are active in The Hague, according to police findings. The members’ age range is from 12 until the late 20’s. The ethnic composition is diverse, but the number of Moroccans is disproportionately high. Nine gangs are criminal. Twenty-seven cause harassment such as destruction and vandalism. Fourteen consist of youngsters who hang around and annoy neighborhood residents. The police say that such groups in the course of time may upgrade to more severe categories of criminal behavior.
