Evansville police are preparing to launch a new program so they can alert residents of crime in their area.
'Next Door' is a social media network for crime alerts that are specific to your neighborhood.
"People get on there to see what's happening with the road and what's blocked off now," said Susan Harp of the Oak Hill Neighborhood Association. "We had some break-ins, some car thefts we were all able to get on there and share where these were happening so everyone was alerted to them."
Evansville Police tell us by next week they'll have the ability to post and send alerts to specific neighborhoods.
If you have the app on your smartphone it's almost instantaneous.
