Ontario Gang Investigators Association
ONGIA is a non-profit organization that is committed to addressing the street gang phenomenon. ONGIA consists of law enforcement professionals and members of the criminal justice community throughout Ontario, Canada and North America.
Welcome to ONGIA's new membership website! The primary function of this website is to provide an information sharing forum on the topic of criminal street gangs for our 600+ membership that is made up of sworn members of the law enforcement community. In 2006 ONGIA has undertaken to reach out to the community with information on the prevention of gangs through its interactive 'Voices of Youth' website www.NoToGangs.org.
This perverse mentality has gained a significant foothold in Ontario. It is not contained or limited by geography, race or economic status. Spurred forward through popular culture where ‘no snitching’ and ‘gangsta’ are as commonly heard in playgrounds as they are in jails, law enforcement and communities face dire challenges.
