The answer to fighting crime is to blow the whistle on it, according to one group in Detroit, Michigan.
As part of a safety program, a community association has handed out more than 350 whistles to residents in the neighborhood. After the monthly severe weather siren test on Saturday, several residents all gathered outside with their whistles and blew them in one large blast to test them out.
The area where the whistles were distributed is reportedly one of the safest areas of Detroit, but the residents want to be prepared, just in case. No reports are available of tests being conducted to see how well a whistle can be heard by neighbors busy inside their homes.
