social media, police have the additional eyes, ears and data provided by those who share

now do so on a daily basis.   It paid-off heavily in their search for a hit-and-run driver who struck
and killed a bicyclist on east Wisconsin Avenue.
     After a Lawrence University student was struck by a hit-and-run drver on College Avenue, a
police video of the incident generated tens-of-thousands of responses.
