Web site allows citizens to hear about local crime, emergencies as they happen

This blog typically gets about 15 hits per day. So, when I recently wrote a post about crime — and then saw this blog get 49 hits on May 18 — I figured it was a sure sign that crime gets peoples’ attention.

There’s a web site that has a small but dedicated following, who’ve even set up their own Facebook group. It’s the Live Online Winnipeg Police Service Scanner — a live audio feed of what’s happening on police radio frequencies — which you can access by clicking the link.

You do have to register and follow the rules. But once you’re registered and tuned in, you can listen to all the action around town while reading a book or doing chores around the house. Sometimes you’ll even hear tomorrow’s big news story as it happens.
