The 100-day public security crackdown in Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region has been brought to a successive close. The crackdown solved 545 cases, took down 10 criminal gangs and arrested 610 criminals.

10 border areas in Xinjiang have launched special crackdowns on crime since the beginning of 2010, bringing criminal crackdowns to a peak period.

The Ili, Tacheng and Altay border detachments dispatched elite police forces to grass-roots police stations, initiating a massive crackdown on crime. They performed repeated patrols in the border areas where herdsmen's livestock are frequently stolen and after careful investigations, the Bortala Mongol Autonomous Prefecture border detachment managed to take down two gangs, arrested 11 suspects and solved 11 cases of various kinds. The border area check points established strict inspection systems, and discovered three illegal immigration cases, and tracked down six smuggling cases involving a total of nearly 400,000 yuan.
