PHOENIX - The FBI is giving you access to a new website it hopes will help track down wanted felons likely committing crimes in your neighborhood.
After seeing record numbers of bank robberies in 2008 and 2009, the FBI decided to launch the website to create awareness and get help from the public.
“When we ask the public to be more alert we've got to do our part and get the information out there,” said Lance Leising, FBI Special Agent.
The website has surveillance photos from bank robbery suspects and details about the robbery. Leising said the information will be loaded onto the site within 24 hours.
The site will also feature street level mapping which allows users to zoom-in to see where bank robberies are occurring throughout the state.
