The fight against Houston-area gang members moved into cyberspace Thursday, as 15 law enforcement agencies fired up a website to allow citizens to provide anonymous information on gang members.

StopHoustonGangs.Org is intended to generate tips on gang crimes and activity, as well as give local parents and their children useful information about the hazards of gang life and tips for identifying members, prosecutors and police said.

"You know, the gangs say they own the night. Well, this website shines the light of day on those thugs," said Harris County District Attorney Patricia Lykos. "Because, if we're going to make Texas and Harris County safer, it's not just law enforcement, it's the entire community that must be involved. And it's parents and educators who can learn from this website."
