Latin Kings

Latin Kings Background:  The Latin Kings is one of the largest Chicago street gangs.  They specialize in narcotics distribution, theft and intimidation.  Although they originated in Chicago, they have spread to other cities, particularly in the Northeast United States, to include, New York, Boston, and Philadelphia.  While there are many factions of the gang, in prison, they present a united front.  They, like many prison gangs, due to their propensity for violence, present special management concerns for prison staff.

Identifying Information:  Gold and black colors;  a five point crown; the initials ALKN (Almighty Latin King Nation); members refer to each other as "reyes", Spanish for king.
