GREENSBORO, N.C. — A new law goes into effect today designed to give law enforcement and prosecutors a set of ground rules for tackling the state's growing gang problem.

The N.C. Street Gang Suppression Act, passed by the General Assembly in July, addresses a number of issues related to gang membership, participation and recruitment, as well as strengthening penalties for related activity.
