New Social Media Used to Help Fight Crime

Posted:

People in some local neighborhoods are using the Internet and social media to fight crime through a site called Next Door.

It connects people who live in the same neighborhood so they can share information.

Right now, two local neighborhoods are using it regularly, Lansing's Eastfield Community and the Tacoma Hills Subdivision in Okemos.

Next Door has the look and feel of Facebook, but is much more private.

"We've already had a few instances with a garage door being open and things being taken, so we've posted an alert on the site. It helps just knowing who everyone around us is," said Kyle and Melissa Kranzo, Next Door users from Tacoma Hills.
