Lubbock Police Department goes to the web to fight crime

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock Police Department has a new tool to fight crime, and it's on the web.

LPD joined Facebook last week to post criminal's pictures and descriptions, hoping that it will lead to some arrests.

"Anytime someone brings an idea and says, hey here's an idea that might help us catch criminals or might help us solve crimes, might help us complete our mission or reach our objectives or goals, its worth trying," says Captain Greg Stevens of the Lubbock Police Department.

LPD says it could also help recruit new officers and will provide a place for community feedback. They also say that it will allow the public to know what the police department is up to.

"We spend tax money day in and day out and we want to let people know the kinds of things we're doing and the way we're meeting out goals and our objectives," says Stevens.

LPD's Facebook page has nearly 600 fans so far. If you would like to become a fan of LPD's Facebook page, just click here.
