Oregonian believe gang activity is increasing

Posted: Updated:

The results of an exclusive FOX12/OPB poll show more than half of Oregonians think gang activity is on the rise statewide.

The phone survey of 500 Oregon residents was conducted earlier this month by the research firm Davis, Hibbitts & Midghall.

More than 70 percent of people surveyed viewed gang activity as a "problem" in Oregon, and 25 percent called it a "very big problem."

However, those numbers dropped significantly when people were asked about gang activity in their local communities.

Only 40 percent said gang activity was a problem in their local community and fewer thought it was on the rise.
