A street gang is an informally-organised group of people, generally in their teens or twenties, who congregate in public locations such as street corners, parks or basketball courts for social and/or criminal purposes. Most street gangs are involved in drug dealing and violent crime, and many identify with wider 'federations' of criminal gangs, such as 'Bloods' and 'Crips'.
