Social network connects Decatur neighborhoods


DECATUR -- A new tool to fight crime and connect with your neighborhood in Decatur is the website

Right now 15 of the city's neighborhoods are active on the website.

You can post about planning community events or cracking down on crime, said city planner Vasudha Pinnamaraju.

She said the network has helped lower crime rates in other cities that use the website.

"People don't want crime in their neighborhood, and when people talk [to each other] it acts like a neighborhood watch group," Pinnamaraju said.

You can sign up for free at or with the free iPhone app.
