The second-highest county was Wake, with 97 gangs.

According to the Associated Press, the report “reflects a fuller picture of gang activity by relying more on hard data from police and prison officials.”

AP reports the Governor’s Crime Commission gave its annual gang report to a legislative panel on Thursday.

The report shows there are nearly 13,700 confirmed gang members and their associates, compared to 10,050 in last year’s report.

A hard copy of the report can be obtained from:
