Chicago's 911 System Can Accept Videos, Photos
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.
