Pelham police launch mobile app for emergency notifications, tips and more
PELHAM — The police department is launching a mobile app to better connect with the community.
The Pelham Police Department announced the release of the Pelham PD App for Apple & Android Devices on Tuesday and said the app would allow users to receive instant notifications from police regarding emergencies, road closures, press releases, town events and more.
Users also will be able to submit anonymous tips that police can instantly reply to, including photos and videos that were taken on a smartphone.
Police said they expect to add more features to the app moving forward.
The app is part of the Citizen Observer Program that some residents already receive text and email notifications through. Residents can still sign up for those alerts at www.citizenobserver.com.
Police said while the app is another way for them to better interact with the community and keep up with the latest technology, the app should not be a substitute for dialing 911 in case of emergencies.
Any questions regarding the Pelham PD App should be directed to Sgt. Brian Barbato at (603) 635-2411.
