Overview

This is a Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) elective Tattoos and Criminal Gangs #3283 online training course offered for peace officers Texas Peace Officers, Jailers, and Telecommunicators.

Tattoos are an excellent tool for peace and corrections officers to identify known or suspected gang members. This course includes examples of tattoos worn by predominantly homegrown and international gangs operating in the US, Canada, and along our porous southern border. Can you read tattoos? The ability to recognize and manage those they encounter with gang tattoos is just as critical.

In this course, we explore gang backgrounds, including the history of tattooing, the process of getting a tattoo, and tattoo mistakes. We then continue our journey by examining homegrown gangsters, their development, modes of operation, and tattoos. 

Our focus then turns to international gangs that heavily impact crime in the US and Canada and their tattoos. These include Hells Angles, the Mexican Mafia, Mexican Cartels, MS13, the Aryan Brotherhood, and the Russian Mafia, ending with the Chinese Triad Mafia. Within each criminal gang, we will explore its developmental background, methods of operations, and prominent tattoos.

Please note, the entire course, final exam(s), and course evaluation(s) must be completed in order to receive four (4) hours of course credit.
