Some police departments are turning to the web to solve crimes.

Rochester PD uses Facebook and Twitter. The chief says the sites have made a huge difference. A few months ago, they were looking for a hit-and-run driver. So they posted about it online. After receiving several tips, they finally found the suspect. 

The chief says it's a great way to connect with the community.
