A senior Chinese security official urged efforts to win the fight against gangs and organized crime on Sunday.

Guo Shengkun, member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and head of the Commission for Political and Legal Affairs of the CPC Central Committee, made the remarks at the opening of a workshop on inspection of a national crackdown on gang crime.

Guo, also head of the leading group of the national crackdown on gangs and organized crimes, urged increased efforts to investigate gang-related cases and crack the "protective umbrellas" behind them.

Inspection teams should have a profound understanding about actual conditions and try to tackle the problems that have prevented the campaign going deep, Guo said.

Guo also called on the inspection teams to improve the ways and measures to fight gangs and organized crime and get the public involved in the campaign.
