New Castle County Police unveil new app

New Castle County police have released a new app designed to help residents interact with the department.

In an effort to build partnerships in the community and open lines of communication between residents and the police department, the free app allows residents to get updates on police events and activities. It will also allow residents to get in touch with the police department for non-emergency matters. Of course, emergency calls should still go to 911.

“Our app is a great addition to our social media tools that allow us to communicate and engage the public” said Colonel Elmer Setting. “We can push out notifications to the public and citizens have a variety of ways to contact us easily from their smartphone or tablet.”

The smart phone application adds to the department’s outreach efforts on other social media outlets including Facebook, Twitter and Citizen Observer.
