Here’s Gabriel Morales’ bio:

I am Gabriel Morales. I have worked in the area of gang prevention and intervention, both in the adult and juvenile system, for over 25 years. My experience includes working with at-risk kids in Seattle, in suburbs, rural areas, and L.A. youth gang diversion programs. I worked many years as a Correctional Peace Officer at Folsom State Prison in California, as well as classifying and dealing with violent offenders in the jail setting of a large city. I am the Lead Gangs Instructor at the WA State Academy for police agencies and most corrections staff and have taught at numerous conferences around the country. I was the Founder and current Vice President of the Int’l Latino Gang Investigators Association. I was invited to speak at the 2006 Chicano Correctional Workers Association Conference in Ontario, CA. In 2008, I was most contracted by the California Highway Patrol to provide gang training. I was also invited to speak at the 35th Annual National Latino Peace Officers Training Institute in Denver, CO, in 2008 where I presented “Current U.S. Prison Gang Trends for Law Enforcement”. In 2009, I was invited to speak at the 47th Annual International Association of Women Police Conference.
