Parents asked to help in gang crackdown

Police in Brooklyn are asking parents in Sunset Park to fill out an anonymous form if they suspect their kids are in a gang.

Jesus Pintos, commanding officer of the 72nd Precinct, says a referral sheet can be sent to the precinct allowing officers to try and get help for those kids who may be going in the wrong direction.

Pintos adds that the most important thing is for parents to keep a very close eye on their children.
