Dover Police Department Launches Mobile App

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - The Dover Police Department launched a new mobile application for smartphone and tablet users.

According to reports, the My Police Department or MyPD phone application can provide notifications and information to the public regarding events, crimes and wanted persons.

MyPD is an app that can reportedly be downloaded through iTunes or Google Play. With it, citizens have access to a number of features, including contacts, feedback and tip forms. They can also access information from FEMA, the National Weather Service and the National Terror Advisory System, receive "Push Notifications/Alerts" for emergency alerts and much more.

The police app also reportedly contains links to information about wanted persons, sex offenders and crime reports. It also allows the department to solicit help from the public in ongoing investigations or crimes. Users can reportedly submit police tips, commend officers, contact personnel, and post questions. Police can also send push alerts, post information on parking bans, post tweets, and circulate other information through the application.

Reports say the application allows users to have full access to the department website, sex offender notifications, crime mapping, and social media outlets in a smooth, flawless transition from the MyPD application.
