It's called the Block Watch of the future, a relatively new app for your phone that helps your neighborhood stay safe and connected.
Fairwood Park near Whitworth University, is the kind of place where all of the neighbors know each other.
"We do annual clean-up days, we had a big Oktoberfest," said resident Kathy Maguire.
Maguire was recently introduced to the Nextdoor app, which she politely shared with her neighbors.
"Immediately when I connected to it, I realized it was the way our neighborhood needed to communicate," Maguire said.
On the app you can share recommendations on dentists, electricians, or babysitters. You can also alert your neighbors of a lost dog or even crime. It came in handy, Wednesday morning.
"All throughout our neighborhood there was break-ins in cars. So there were three posts this morning from residents just saying, 'hey, be aware."
Kathy's neighbors Pat and Chuck Burns have lived in Fairwood Park for 40 years. The former block watch captains say the Nextdoor app is the block watch of the future.
