Website For Neighborhood Watch

Posted: Updated:

Officials with the Dubuque Police Department say neighborhood watch groups in Dubuque have virtually banished but they hope a website will help neighbors connect. 

The website is called NextDoor.com. The site is free and allows neighbors to connect and share information like if their pet is missing or about crimes that may have occurred in the area. 
            
Officials with the Dubuque Police Department say the site could lower crimes in neighborhoods.

"There is no doubt that sites like this prevent crime," said Lt. Scott Baxter of the Dubuque Police Department. "Anytime that we can increase vigilance in the neighborhoods, communications in the neighborhood, it's going to prevent crime."

But even in our increasingly online world, police say nextdoor.com is no substitute for face-to-face conversations.
