Digital TV subscribers in the Washington area can now help police solve crimes by clicking the remote. Cable provider Comcast is partnering with D.C.'s Metropolitan Police Department in launching "Police Blotter on Demand."
The digital TV channel features updated video profiles of individuals on the city's most wanted list and information on how to contact police anonymously with any tips. In a statement announcing the channel, Police Chief Cathy Lanier says it's another resource to keep residents informed and to enlist their help in tracking down criminals.
The channel is available to Comcast Digital TV subscribers in the district, as well as in Northern Virginia and in Prince George's, Montgomery, and Frederick Counties in Maryland.
