Crime mapping app for smartphones
TROY, Mich. -

The Troy Police Department is partnering with crimemapping.com to help keep residents and visitors informed of the latest crimes in the city.

Using the free smartphone app, anyone can see what's happening around Troy based on your current phone's location.

Crime mapping app

How it works:

Crimes around town are pulled from a reporting database and transposed onto a map centered on the user’s smartphone location.

Crime details will include the type of crime and general location where it occurred.

The app also allows users to check what crimes have been reported, based on their current location anywhere in the country, providing the local agency is participating with crimemapping.com.

Free downloads:

To get the app for Apple devices please visit: itunes.apple.com

To get the app for Android devices please visit: play.google.com

Microsoft Windows 8 will be coming out with an app in the next few months.
