PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- The Princess Anne Police Department has released a new smartphone application designed to keep residents safe, informed and connected.

Inside the department's station, Chief Scott Keller explained the features of the agency's new “P.A.P.D. Mobile App,” the name that is used to search and download.

The mobile app is compatible with any smart device, including iPads and iPod Touches. Keller said the agency has been trying to figure out ways to keep residents up-to-date. He said a retired police officer and a current police officer at the station teamed-up to develop the free application that contains nine features.

"It will make it a lot easier for people to access information about us, to give us information and exchange information," Keller said.

When users download the application, they have access to the department's Twitter and Facebook pages. Also, there is a Google Map icon that users can use to pinpoint the station's location and dial-in using a telephone icon.  

Anonymous tips can be submitted and a direct link to the station's website is provided. Parents like Lenore Bivens tell WBOC the new mobile will make them feel informed at all times.

“Sometimes my phone is not on, but I'm around Wi-Fi 24-7, so with the app it will come straight to my phone so I know what's going on,” Bivens said.

"I think it will help the community out and let the community be aware of what's going on," said Guy Edley, who lives in Princess Anne.
