New Mobile App for Dover Police Department

Updated:

DOVER, Del.- The Dover Police Department has launched a new mobile app that officials say provides public information on events, wanted persons and crime.

Police said the public can now access feedback, contact information, and useful tips via the department's new My Police Department app, or MyPD. Information on FEMA, The National Weather Service, and The National Terror Advisory System is also available.

The department can even ask citizens for help with ongoing investigations or crimes, police said.App users can also commend officers, give tips, and ask questions. The department can in turn, send alerts and post any information the public may need.

MyPD users now hold the entire department website in their pocket, officials said.

The Dover Police Department is the second agency in Delaware to utilize the MyPD platform. With the MyPD app coupled with social media outlets the Dover Police Department is now in a league of their own among the national use of web based software in crime fighting.

The application is available to Iphone and Android users. It can be downloaded from Google Play or Itunes, and is 100 percent free.

Police said that although communication is an important part of the app, users have the option of remaining anonymous when relinquishing information.

For question, interview, or product demos contact PIO Cpl. Hoffman at (302) 736-7130.
