Available in the Apple App Store and Google Play, the NWPD app provides up-to-date alerts, information on recruitment, a section to send in tips, and contact information for the non-emergency line, among other features.
“We really wanted to be connected,” Crime Prevention Unit and Reserve Program coordinator Shelley Cole said. “This gives people another tool to stay informed and a way to get our messages out there quickly.”
The app was launched Sept. 15 after a year of development. Its long-term goal is modernizing the way the department connects with those who live, work and go to school in the community.
“We want them to know what’s going on. It's a one-stop shop to help keep you informed and safe,” Cole said.
