Assignment Fox Cities

     Police agencies in greater numbers are turning to social media to solve crimes.  By using
social media, police have the additional eyes, ears and data provided by those who share
the technology, and it's  paying big dividends.
     Appleton police Sergeant Dave Lund says they have used social media for several years, but
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.
     Sergeant Lund details the use of social media and how it helps police solve crimes in
