Dear Member

In this month's eNews, we touch on a new danger that's developing out of social media: that of "flash robs", shorthand for flash robbery. We also take a look at a new mobile app that can help officers alert citizens in a faster, more accurate fashion.

Also, be sure to check out the story of Verizon's new 911 texting service.
