Below are facts based on extensive evidence compiled by police departments on their interactions with street level Dial-a-Dope involved youth.

Dial-a-Dopers are drawn to gang life by the prospect of making a great deal of money.

Dial-a-Dopers make very little money.

Dial-a-Dopers will front (provide without payment) drugs to their trusted customers.

Dial-a-Dopers are at risk of being ‘ripped off’ of their drugs.

Dial-a-Dopers are almost always held responsible for any losses.

Despite the strict control of the gang leader, it is common for Dial-a-Dopers to accumulate debts.

The gang leader will not always know who his Dial-a-Dopers are and the Dial-a-Dopers do not always know whom they are working for.

Dial-a-Dopers are not well protected by the gang leaders. Given the secrecy of gang life, the families of Dial-a-Dopers are not well-protected from any direct involvement in the transactions.

Dial-a-Dopers almost always have a valid driver’s license.

Most gangs do not give the Dial-aDopers access to stolen vehicles for transporting drugs.

Before being hired by a gang, Dial-a- Dopers do not need to show loyalty by stealing from a rival gang.

Despite their low level in the gang hierarchy, it is not easy for Dial-aDopers to leave the gang at any time.
