When the Toledo Police Department refused to release a gang map that showed which gangs claimed which neighborhoods in the small city 60 miles southwest of Detroit, crime reporter Taylor Dungjen decided to create her own.

That’s the short version of how the Toledo Blade came to publish a four-part series, along with a much-talked about gang map that drew the public ire of the city’s mayor.
