Tampa, Florida -- In the technology age, more and more law enforcement agencies are using social media. So too is the Tampa Police Department, which announced Tuesday it's taking the next step in digital crime fighting with a state of the art mobile app.
Citizens can report crime tips, neighborhood issues, get the latest on unresolved crimes, check the most wanted list, and contact their school resource officer.

They can also create a digital library with photos and serial numbers of their valuable electronics, jewelry, family heirlooms, etc. This information can be emailed directly from the app to law enforcement should citizens ever become victims of crime. This information will help law enforcement solve the crime and can be useful for insurance purposes.
People can even submit photo tips through the mobile app. One of the key features of the app is that citizens can submit information either with their name or anonymously.
TPD's mobile app is available for free in the iTunes and Google Play stores. But remember, the mobile app should not be used for emergencies, instead call 911.
