The Montgomery County Police Department has set up an anonymous Gang Tip Hotline so the public can help identify illegal gang activity.

The hotline can be reached by calling 240-773-GANG or 240-773-4264, and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Police officials said all information would be held in a confidential manner.

Resource information on organizations involved in gang prevention and intervention can be found on the Montgomery County Police Web site, www.montgomerycountymd.gov/police, under "Divisions/Stations," then by clicking on "Station Units" and then "Gang Coordinator."
