The Duluth Police Department is now live on www.nextdoor.com. It's a social networking site for neighborhoods.

First, the user has to verify what neighborhood they live in. Then, they have access to neighborhood conversations. People can post about anything. For example, a lost pet or that they're looking for a baby sitter.

"You can actually communicate with neighbors and meet people you never knew were in your community," Lieutenant Chad Nagorski said. "It's kind of that sense of community in the new technology age."

People can also communicate with police on the site. They can send in tips and the police can post crime updates that are neighborhood specific. Don’t worry about police spying; community conversations are private to people who live in the neighborhood.

If you want to sign up, head to www.nextdoor.com.
