Bexar County Sheriff's Office partners with social media platform
from Texas Public Radio
While investigating a spate of evening car break-ins in a neighborhood on the west side of Bexar County, investigators from the Sheriff’s Office thought residents might have photos or surveillance camera footage that could help, but didn't have a quick way to request that information. Seven hundred homes later, they did get some video and photos back. That case prompted the department to find a faster, more effective solution.
The county has now partnered with neighborhood social media site Nextdoor. Now sheriffs can push crime alerts, prevention tips and request assistance to specific neighborhoods instantly.
