As technology continues to advance, it’s more important than ever for law enforcement officials to stay on top of the latest news. With social media sites like Twitter and Facebook connecting nearly every person in your community, it takes mere moments for false information to spread, causing panic among civilians. As an officer of the law, it’s not only your duty to stop crime and protect your community, but to keep the citizens of your area informed about what’s happening in their own neighborhood. And this is why so many sheriffs’ departments throughout the country have opted to research police iPhone and Android apps that form a community safety network. And the one that shows up most often in their search results? AppArrest.
Developed as a customized phone app for law enforcement officials like yourself, AppArrest allows you to send push notifications that immediately arrive to such mobile devices as iPhones, Android phones, Android tablets and iPads. Free for your community members to receive, push notifications inform each AppArrest user of emergency information within seconds. This mobile app for police departments gives you the opportunity to upload suspects’ photos and even take tips straight from your mobile device. As AppArrest’s method of using push notifications is quick and direct, messages can be sent at any time, popping right up on community members’ screens.
With the ability to search the National Sex Offender Public Website, commend an officer, send crime alerts, report an abandoned vehicle and more, AppArrest gives you the chance to involve your community as an active “6th man” for your department! This feature-rich application gives your department an edge over the criminals no matter where they try to hide. Let your community know where the crimes are happening, and even create your own “Top 10 Most Wanted” list for everyone to see on their mobile devices. How you choose to utilize your police iPhone and Android app is completely up to your department as you select the features you want to include in your customized phone app.

On October 1, 2012, the Clare County Sheriff Office was called to the Clare/Gladwin RESD for a student who had left the school on foot and ventured toward a large wooden area south of Mannsiding Rd near Clare Ave. Officers arrived on scene and got a description of the subject. This information was then sent out to the public via push notification with the department’s customized phone app. The information was pushed out approximately 1 hour after the initial report was made to the sheriff’s office. Roughly 25 minutes after the alert was made public, officers received notice of a possible sighting nearly 1.5 miles from where the student went missing. Within 20 minutes of the report that he had been seen, officers located him in the woods and he was returned to school.
