When we built the CrimeWatch app for the City of Fishers, we hoped for two things: 1) citizens will use it to protect our community, and 2) this is a good preparation for the future of how people communicate with Police for non-emergency issues. We’re starting to see that vision bear fruit with the first arrest via an in-app report. There have been over 250 incidents reported, and over 2,800 citizens have installed the app. This is awesome. We’ve been listening and adding new capabilities based on feedback, both from officers, and the community. Please keep the ideas coming – we’re happy to help you!
