What People Are Saying
What an outstanding concept. With the deteriorating budget of local law enforcement, our communities need all the help we can get, and so do they. In addition, the more people that get involved within their community, the better it is for all. It is a safer way for individuals to report suspicious and illegal activity without the fear of retaliation (a prime reason in many areas why people do not get involved).
It's a win win lose situation where the public wins not only from access to an efficient crime prevention tool, but also by instilling a sense of community woefully wanting in our "modern" world. Law Enforcement wins by being able to gather data and use manpower more efficiently and the shared information engenders more cooperation between agencies. And best of all: The Knuckleheads Lose. I've seen this work.
