What People Are Saying
Having followed watchjeffersoncounty.net for 2 years, I'm very impressed by the thoughtful solutions to difficult issues of privacy, accuracy, conflict resolution, timeliness, aggregation, and more. This is a model for other communities and for other community-oriented projects.
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.
