Chicago makes history by allowing 911 callers to send photos or videos of the incidents from their cell phones.

The police department's crime-prevention information center first began receiving the images in September as part of a pilot program, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Since then, the office has received more than 30 images from callers, most of which are related to incidents related to property damage, according the Sun-Times.

The office reviews the images to see if they should be sent as evidence to first responders or detectives investigating the incident.
