Free App Tracks Crime in Cathedral City
CREATED May. 14, 2012
CATHEDRAL CITY - People living in Cathedral City can now track crime in their neighborhood from their smart phone.
The police department launched a free app showing recent crimes by location.
The app includes all of the key features of Cathedral City's online crime map, www.raidsonline.com, and allows citizens to see recent crime activity based on an address or the citizen's current location.
The RAIDS Online Mobile app is available for free on the App Store.
RAIDS Online Mobile empowers citizens to better understand crime trends and help lower crime in their area. Recent crime incidents are displayed on a map or listed in a grid. Users can click on an incident for more information or display a hotspot map based on the crimes that are currently in display. Users can also sign up for neighborhood watch reports that automatically email any recent crime activity on a daily, weekly or monthly schedule. The app makes all of this information accessible anywhere from a user's mobile device.
"The Cathedral City Police Department's participation in RAIDS Online highlights their commitment to proactive communication with the public they serve," said Sean Bair, founder of BAIR Analytics, "We're excited to partner with the Cathedral City Police Department to provide this additional free service for their public."
