Pinterest: Most Wanted

Joliet IL Police Department PinterestFor many of us, Pinterest is a place to share favorite recipes, décor, fashion, and cute animal pictures.  Most probably wouldn’t think to Pin a photo of a crime suspect or information about a crime.  But the Joliet, IL Police Department thinks otherwise and believes Pinners just may be able to help them fight crime. And, they might be on to something! Within just a few days of the department’s Pinterest page going up, they had over 100 followers and more than 20 pinned items.

Now THIS seems like a most amazing use of today’s social dialog for an amazingly unique purpose! What a great way to get citizens involved in making their community a safer place to live. Good luck to the Joliet IL Police Department and happy Pinning!
