'The Old Bill', otherwise known as the police, are often criticized for not being seen on the streets enough.
In a well-intentioned method to make a local community feel safer, the Surrey Police have released a free app that 'connects' the local neighborhood to their police force.
The application allows people to see where their neighborhood officers are and what they are working on -- as well as giving people a heads' up if a crime is being committed in their area.
Useful, or just another tool in a criminal's box of tricks?
