Dallas police sending neighborhood e-mail blasts to target crime

DALLAS — Starting this month, Dallas residents can enroll in a new online messaging program. It's an e-mail blast that works like Twitter, targeting crime reports to your neighborhood.

Lt. Andy Harvey is taking on a new role as the social media expert for Dallas Police. He's in charge of Nixle, a community information service dedicated to helping you stay connected.

"There are some things that we want our community to know faster, and if they want it, we'll give it to them," Lt. Harvey said. "As a police department, we need to make sure we keep up with technology and use it as effectively as we can."
