On Friday, March 31, 2006, the U. S. Conference of Mayors, led by Conference President Long Beach Mayor Beverly O''Neill will join host mayor Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, along with mayors and police chiefs from around the country, for a national summit on gangs on Friday, March 31, 2006, at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles.

Mayors will also hear from U.S. Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales about what cities and suburbs across the country can do to reverse the trend of growing youth violence and stem the growth of gangs in America.

Mayors are particularly concerned about the recent introduction of MS-13 -- composed mostly of Salvadorans and other Central Americans, largely illegal aliens - considered the fastest- growing and most violent street gang in America.

Mayors believe the incorporation of community policing in the fight against gangs is key. Those who have successfully used community policing to address gang intervention and gang violence in their cities will share best practices, and the Conference will release its latest Community Policing Best Practices publication.

The National Summit on Gangs is sponsored by the U.S. Conference of Mayors'' Institute on Community Policing and the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS).
