Somerset Police Department is on MyPD, an app for the public, enabling crime tips and alerts from smartphones
MyPD has up to 40 features and a sleek user interface. The app is available now to the public to download for iPhone and Android at the MyPD website. Some features include information for victims, traffic updates, missing children, and similar resources. The app is easy to use with icons which are easy to browse from the main screen or slide up menu.
Sending in tips about crimes or other quality of life issues is another way citizens can use the Somerset Police MyPD app. It allows the user to either attach their contact information or send it anonymously. Photos and GPS locations of incidents can also be attached from either the phones gallery or live camera. While the app links to or integrates with some social media, it is not another social network.
The app also lets users share some basic anonymous data about their age, gender, or how they found out about the app. This is optional and if shared will help the Department to better understand who is using the app, how they found it and if they live or work in the Town. MyPD is free for the public, contains no advertising, and users do not need to share personal information or set up an account to use the app. Any information sharing is optional. Citizens looking to connect with the Somerset Police Department should search for “MyPD” in their app store. Once the app is downloaded and the agency chosen it will always open to the Somerset Police Department and its resources.
