More police departments are getting crime tips from concerned citizens through smartphone apps, facebook, or their websites. We provide app and web forms for law enforcement agencies to receive these crime tips. Additionally we provide forms for feedback, questions, and commendations. The great thing about these forms are that they are secure and anonymous for the user.
While we don’t always hear about many tips that come in to departments we recently found two articles about citizens using police apps to send in crime tips. The first story is about our popular MyPD app which we have now partnered with over 200 agencies to provide to the public. The app provides everything an agency needs for a nominal cost. http://peabodypolice.org/app-tip-from-citizen-leads-to-heroin-arrest/
The second article is about the New Castle County Police Department app which is an app we created in 2013 for the agency. http://www.delawareonline.com/story/news/crime/2014/10/08/crime-tip-app-leads-drug-arrest/16921703/
