Dialing 311 To Fight Crime
A program called "Operation Live Link" was launched this week in the Mount Pleasant section of Washington, which is in the city's third district, reports NBC4.
"The Mount Pleasant Neighborhood Alliance donated three cell phones to officers who patrol the area. When residents dial 311, they will reach the police to report anything suspicious.
Residents can then call in with complaints about public drunkenness, prostitution, suspicious people and loitering, and the 911 system is not affected."
