How could a neighborhood use Twitter for crime/safety alerts and prevention

Looking for specific examples on how neighbors could use a service like Twitter to improve safety/security? For example, send a Tweet if a suspicious person is spotted along with location, etc. Other examples?

in my town the next subdivision over set up a private group on facebook for just such a thing. they post anything thats happend such as vandalism or breakins.

just set up a group then set it to private then invite people in your neighborhood, its the only way people can join

If you can wait for Google+, I bet that would be a better solution. Having a "neighborhood" circle to communicate would be easier to keep up with I feel.
