Facebook, Twitter, Delicious... I'm a bit of a nosy person and I love social networking websites because they allow me to keep up to date with what's going on around me in a simple way.
For the same reason, I'm a big fan of the new London's Most Wanted website that launched today. It allows you to look through over 100 appeals of wanted individuals from London. You can even filter them by borough and crime type. I didn't just look through the appeals in my borough though; I checked out all of the boroughs I visit regularly, just to make sure I'm not sitting on the bus every day next to a wanted crim.
London's Most Wanted is a joint project between the Metropolitan Police and the charity Crimestoppers. Appeals are uploaded by the Met and the site itself is hosted by Crimestoppers. An ideal match some (such as myself!) would say.
Since launching not even 24 hours ago the site has already had more than 30,000 visitors. What a great result for a worthwhile project like this one.
If you haven't already, make sure you check out London's Most Wanted. You can also read more about the project on the Crimestoppers website.
