The series of high-profile organized crime trials in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality have proved just the tip of the iceberg in a nationwide battle against crime gangs.
On Monday, southwest China's Guizhou Province, published 10 e-mail addresses for the public to report gang-related crimes on the website of its public security department.
Guizhou police dealt with at least seven gang crime cases within 20 days in an intensive crackdown last month.
Police in Hunan Province, in central China, was also reported to have broken up three major criminal gangs in its Xiangxi prefecture this year.
Across Hunan, 73 officials were found to have shielded or been directly engaged in gang-related crimes.
Other provinces such as Gansu and Anhui were also intensifying the fight against organized crime gangs.
China's police launched a long-term campaign against criminal gangs in 2006. As of September, more than 1,200 cases of gang crimes have been dealt with across the country, with more than 13,000 criminal gangs broken up and at least 89,000 people arrested.
The revelations of police officials in collusion with criminals in Chongqing Municipality that started in June have heightened coverage of the campaign.
