The recently released NYPD iPhone app lets users stay up-to-date with the latest in crime-fighting activities. It is also useful in helping build neighborhood organizations and crime-watch coalitions. “[The NYPD] recognizes that community members are our partners in the reduction of crime and improvement of the quality of life in our neighborhoods,” the NYPD said in a statement. “Technology is a vital tool that connects law enforcement with its communities around the world to help improve safety and security.” According to the Bayside-Douglaston Patch, the app contains several features including wanted posters, breaking news, crime videos, crime statistics and NYPD Facebook.
