Residents seek end to ‘No Snitching’ street rule
Community activists and the families of unsolved murder victims made a plea to end a street rule that keeps people from sharing information with police.
Police say they continue to fight the "No Snitching" code that is alive and well on the streets of Long Island.
Victims' families said at a news conference Thursday that more people are needed to speak up in order to make the streets safer. Some believe more needs to be done to strengthen relationships between the community and law enforcement.
Police say they have numerous ways of letting the public submit tips anonymously. They say Crime Stoppers hotline is the most popular method of sharing information.
