RALEIGH, N.C. — Raleigh police are giving the public a chance to help solve crime. The department's Web site has a link to its most-wanted suspects.

Since the department updated the most-wanted section a few months ago, officials said about 6,000 people have accessed the page.

"I think a lot more people are using the Internet now, and we're using it as a method to communicate with the public," said Lt. R.J. Daigle, of the Raleigh Police Department.

The page also includes a


to names of more than 800 people wanted by Raleigh police dating back to 1983.

"If we can get the public interested in trying to help us locate the individuals, sometimes one or two pieces of the puzzle will come together," Daigle said. "If you have a piece and someone else has a piece and those two pieces come together, it will work rather well for us."

Online users can also use the Web site to e-mail anonymous tips to authorities.
