Police app to report crimes now available

The National Police announced the availability for Android mobile phone users of the Tu PoliciApp RD for reporting traffic accidents, crimes or crime-related events anonymously. The reporting of evidence of crimes will be able to be sent through this platform as well.

Police director, Major General Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte, made the announcement on 27 December 2017. He said the app will also serve as a communication channel with citizens who will now have direct contact with the Police. The chief of the Police says the app guarantees anonymity for those reporting crimes. Photographs, videos and notes can be sent with the messages

The app will permit the geo-referencing of the reports for easier access to a site of a crime by the police. In select cases of gender violence, a panic button will be activated for quick assistance to vulnerable people. The app also allows for direct contact with the 911 Emergency System.

While Tu PoliciAPP RD is only so far available for Android platforms, later it will be available on the Apple platform.
