The Philadelphia Police Department has launched a more-interactive Web site as part of an effort to engage the public through the Internet and its social-networking tools.

"We can use technology to really engage with people, and that's something that's been underutilized so far," said Karima Zedan, the department's director of strategic communications. "This is our first step in that direction."
