(MyNews4.com & KRNV) Reno, Nev. - Alert ID has joined forces with the Department of Homeland Security to open the lines of communication between residents and the federal government in an effort to combat terrorism.

"Homeland security starts with hometown security," said Alert ID founder Keli Wilson. "Alert ID serves a the eyes and ears on the street to convey important information."

Robert Dorsey, a coordinator at the Northern Nevada Counter Terrorism Center, says the partnership is a logical one.

"The Department of Homeland Security has an initiative set up: "See something, say something," he said. "They also have a suspicious act reporting system, and Alert ID fills that gap at a community level."

Alert ID is a free system that allows residents to enter their home, work or school address and immediately receive criminal activity alerts from incidents in their neighborhoods. They can also communicate directly with neighbors and with law enforcement about what's happening. The system was piloted in Northern Nevada, and is now opening operations in Southern Nevada.
