The new CrimeReports iPhone app features official, up-to-date crime data directly from more than 600 law enforcement agencies across North America. The app is free to download from the iTunes App Store.
The CrimeReports iPhone app allows users 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 your local law enforcement agency if they’re not already on-board.
“We’re excited to provide another avenue through which local law enforcement agencies can engage their citizens in crime prevention and community policing efforts,” says Greg Whisenant, founder and CEO of CrimeReports. “By making this information available on a mobile device, citizens will have even easier access to the information that will keep them and their families safe.” He adds that this benefit to the community is one of the reasons CrimeReports decided to offer the app free of charge.
