HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The FBI is teaming up several local law enforcement agencies on a new initiative, billed as a proactive attack on gangs. The campaign includes the use of billboards and a website.

The website www.stophoustongangs.org was created to inform and educate the public about criminal gangs and provide a way for residents to report anonymous tips about potential criminal gang activity. This community policing initiative was designed to help keep our communities safe from gangs and the related violence they bring.

The website is a measure that utilizes technology to partner with the community and increase awareness through education regarding the threat of criminal gang activity. Residents can also access information about prevention and intervention programs.

Among the most important features:

  • Option to anonymously report gang activity
  • Statistics on gang activity
  • How to tell if criminal activity is related to gangs
  • Listing of the gangs at work in the Houston-Harris County area
  • How to look for the signs and markings, such as tattoos of gang members
