Police officers frequently rely on residents of an area for assistance when it comes to reporting crimes. Traditionally, this was done via landlines. Now though, cell phones have made assisting police much simpler. The average citizen walking down the street can serve as a community watchdog who contacts the police if a situation warrants it.
Local law enforcement officers have said, increasingly, that they appreciate calls from observant citizens. Cell phones have made communication between police and callers easier. They can be particularly important when time is of the essence, like in the event of an accident.
Cell phones are particularly appreciated by emergency responders in the event of snowmobile or ATV accidents. These accidents typically take place far from landlines that can be used to call for help. Cell phones have been used to call in the majority of snowmobile accidents this season.
