Facebook is now being used for more than just reconnecting with old friends. It is being used to catch criminals. The Fargo Police Department is now posting surveillance video and photos from robberies and other small crimes. Officials hope people will be able to identify suspects and generate new leads.

Lt. Joel Vettel – Fargo Police: “Most recent we used it when we had a situation involving a firearm that was stolen in downtown Fargo. That was placed on our Facebook account.”

Facebook has already helped the department with several crimes.
