Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Web-based crime tracker to connect community, police: "The Austin Police Department launched on Monday a new Web-based communication tool, the Citizen Alert Network, which lets residents sign up to receive crime alerts through e-mails and text messages. The alerts will include information about wanted suspects, missing persons, weather emergencies and crime trends, officials said.

'In light of our budget constraints and reduced resources, we need to leverage technology to help citizens and businesses stay in touch with the Police Department,' police Chief Art Acevedo said."
