Broken Arrow residents can now take their neighborhood crime map with them wherever they go
Broken Arrow Police Department announces the availability of a new iPhone app, in partnership with CrimeReports that will provide citizens with local crime mapping and national sex offender data. The Broken Arrow Police Department already publishes their crime data on the National Crime Map and are now making that data even easier to access through the CrimeReports iPhone app, available at the iTunes App Store. The CrimeReports iPhone app is free.
“This information is vital to our citizens’ safety,” says Crime Prevention Specialist Lisa Ford. “Providing it to the general public through a mobile device allows citizens even easier access to it than before. We’re pleased to be offering the most advanced tools available to foster communication and engagement with community members to prevent and reduce crime.”
“Broken Arrow Police Department has already been a leader in citizen communication by sharing their crime data online at CrimeReports.com,” says Greg Whisenant, founder and CEO of CrimeReports. “Now they are equipped with another avenue through which to engage Broken Arrow citizens to build a safer community.”
In addition to local crime, the CrimeReports iPhone app also features crime data for more than 600 other law enforcement agencies across North America, and includes registered sex offender data for all 50 states. CrimeReports adds more than 50 agencies to its National Crime Map each month, so coverage is expanding quickly. The CrimeReports iPhone app allows anyone to:
- Filter data by location or address, incident type, and customizable date range
- View recent neighborhood level crimes on the map or in a list
- View national sex offender data alongside crime in your neighborhood
- Sign-up for free, automated, email crime alerts
- Request the participation of other surrounding law enforcement agencies if they’re not already on-board
The CrimeReports team is also currently planning similar apps for other mobile platforms. You can find out more about the new CrimeReports iPhone app by visiting www.CrimeReports.com/iphone. Working with more than 600 law enforcement agencies across North America, CrimeReports is the largest and most accurate online resource for up-to-date crime and sex offender information.
