WHAT IS IT?
The My Police Department App, or MyPD App, connects Bluffton police with community members and tourists alike. Not only does it provide alert community members of safety alerts, vehicle collisions, road closures, and more, it also improves communication between residents and police.
HOW IT WORKS
Are you looking for a way to be directly in touch with the Bluffton Police Department to know what is happening in your neighborhood, or on Bluffton Parkway, or in Old Town? Then you need to sign up for the My Police Department or MyPD app. It’s free, and you can download it to your I-phone or Android in the matter of seconds.
The Bluffton Police Department has been using this app for a little more than two years now, but if you are new to the area and want to start getting notifications about traffic collisions or safety alerts, than you should download the app right now. Not only does this app allow you to stay notified, it also allows community members to submit tips and commend officers.
For those who have already downloaded the app, make sure you update it on your phone’s settings. The app has a new fresh look and allows users to do a lot more and have access to a lot more. The best part, the app does not require user data sharing for use. Allowing citizens to maintain privacy, and not forcing them to share data is a priority of our police department in these times where personal information and data is a growing concern.
NOTIFICATIONS ON PHONE AND COMPUTER
Part of the newest and convenient features allows you to not only receive notifications on your phone, but also on your home or work computer or laptop. The MyPD app now includes 50 total options and features. All you need to do is go to MyPoliceDepartment.org to sign up for web alerts or go to the App store on your phone and download the MyPD app. Look for this icon.
