The Marysville Police Department is using a new app to interact with the community.
The user friendly design makes it so that residents can comment, leave crime tips, even send images through the app. When sending a tip you have the option of remaining anonymous and disabling your GPS.
The new app also allows the department to send emergency alerts, post news about missing persons, traffic delays, weekly crime reports, even surveys regarding police activity.
In the event of an emergency, app users will get a push notification to their phone.
The app is free and is available for smart phones that use Apple Android or Windows platforms. To find the app search "Marysville PD" in the app store.
The app is not meant to replace calling 9-1-1 in emergency situations.
