Flickr can be used to catch suspects.

Recently, I've suggested some friends on Flickr who is from the police department to try to put up wanted posters as well, with as much information as possible.

As he has a number of supporters, crowd-sourcing can be done to leverage his network for additional eyes and ears, especially for an End of Watch, where a police officer has been killed.

And it actually worked. adding details and other information led to the suspect being arrested.

Perhaps local law enforcement can do the same as well.
