NEW ORLEANS, La. — Members of some nationally affiliated gangs are coming to Louisiana to look for work following Hurricane Katrina, to find new members and to continue their lives of drugs and violence, officials said Thursday.

And while U.S. Attorney David Dugas said he hasn't seen signs that gangs are trying to organize, law enforcement officials are training this week in Baton Rouge and Shreveport to better prepare themselves to deal with gangs.
