Auburn Police Launch Police App. My Police Department (MyPD) app
AUBURN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — If you’d like your police department to be one tap of the touchscreen away, in Auburn, there’s an app for that.
The app can be found by searching “My PD” or “My Police Department” in the app store . Once downloaded, search “Auburn Police Department.”
The application creates a two-way flow of information. Users can submit police tips, commend officers, contact personnel, and post questions. Police can send push alerts, post information on parking bans, post tweets, and circulate other information through the application.
“Social media has really redefined the way we do community policing,” he said. “It’s all about trying to improve our communication with the community.”
The My Police Department App also navigates to the South Portland Police Department and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.
