San Jose officials and police this summer are looking to keep kids safe and away from gangs, who tend to recruit more young members when classes are out of session.

Activities and events designed to keep kids active so that they don't fall prey to gangs are planned throughout the summer. In addition, police plan to patrol gang hot spots in the downtown and east parts of town.

Damian Trujillo takes a closer look at the city's plan to get kids back safely to the first day of school. View his report by clicking the play button on the video above.
