Crime Fighting in the Participation Age

This just in... YouTube helps police find murder suspect

TORONTO (Reuters) - A video posted on the ultra-popular Web site YouTube has helped Canadian
police find a man they believe responsible for a murder.

While a lot of the talk about Web 2.0 and the Participation Age has been around social networking, sharing and collaboration, here is a concrete example of how these new forms of technology and services can be applied to help make the world a safer place. Kudos to the Hamilton City Police Department for taking the concept of neighborhood watch into the Web 2.0 world.
