Police in Sacramento are encouraging residents to sign up for a new app called "Nextdoor." They say it's similar to Facebook, but instead of social interaction for fun, it promotes neighborhood watch and safety. Neighbors can report suspicious activity or crimes in a matter of minutes to everyone in their networks. Police say that by implementing this app in their neighborhoods, they hope to make Sacramento the safest big city in the country.
