The League City (Texas) Police Department (LCPD) is promoting a new way for citizens to stay connected via a free cell phone app. The LCPD is using the "MyPD" application to give residents better service and communications.
According to League City's recent announcement, "The MyPD app allows you to ask questions, send tips, follow the latest Facebook and Twitter feeds, commend an officer, submit feedback, and find important Department contact information. Push notifications inform you of timely, relevant information. Options include the ability to retrieve information from FEMA, the National Weather Service, and the National Terror Advisory System. Our citizens will also have immediate access to link for wanted persons, sex offenders, crime maps, and surveys."
The free MyPD app is available for both iPhone and Android phones and is free of advertisements. Finding this app is as simple as doing an app search for "My Police Department" or "MyPD" in the iPhone or Android markets. Once the app is downloaded, residents will need to search for the League City Police Department and select that option.
The app's features will allow residents to submit tips, ask questions, and more from the drop-down menu. This app should not be used during any type of emergency situation. '911' should be called in an emergency situation or needed response.
With the grand opening of League City's high tech Public Safety Building in January 2015, the League City Police Department is finding new ways to utilize technology to keep in touch with citizens. More information can be found on the League City website.
