Police Tip Line Goes Mobile
Download the app to send the police photos, tips, questions and comments.
The Swampscott Police Department’s newest Anonymous Tip forms relative to community policing, crime fighting, public outreach is now available right on your Android or iPhone.
The phone application or “app” can be downloaded FREE by searching for My Police Department or MyPD in the iPhone or Android marketplace.
The app is packed with ways to contact the Swampscott Police Department to send ANONYMOUS tips, photos, features for checking on the latest news, social media postings, directions, department contacts, submitting feedback & questions, department surveys, submitting crime tips, and more.
The Submit a Tip feature will be an anonymous tip feature.
The app is available to the public free of charge and is also free of any advertisements.
“We are proud to adopt this latest technology and provide it to the citizens of Swampscott ” said Chief Ronald Madigan “Our goal is to increase the flow of information, allowing users to easily send us messages or ask questions, while also providing them with our latest news and services in one easy to use app.”
“Often times our citizens know what they need but are unsure who to direct the question or comment to.” Said Chief Madigan. “Our app’s crime tips or questions and feedback features allows a user to choose a topic from the forms drop-down menu that best suits them and that message will then be routed to the correct Officer.”
All of the forms can be sent anonymously to the department, though we encourage an email address or phone number if you would like a response. Users also have the availability to upload photos and GPS information with the app forms.
The public can now send crime tips, commendations, and feedback directly from the Swampscott police website as well.
The app developer, WiredBlue, and the Swampscott Police Department have new features planned for an upcoming release.
“The department is always open to suggestions and feedback from our citizens” said Chief Madigan.
More app information can be found on the Swampscott Police Department website at www.Swampscottpolice.com or the MyPD app website http://MyPDapp.com. The Swampscott Police Department is now on Facebook at Swampscott Police Department and on Twitter @SwampscottPD.
