Sandy Police Department Releases Free Mobile App to Connect with Members of the
Sandy and Estacada Communities
The Sandy Police Department has released a free mobile app to connect with members of the Sandy and Estacada communities through their smartphones and tablets. The new app allows Sandy Police Department to quickly disseminate emergency alerts, and post news about missing persons, traffic delays, and weekly crime reports. In the event of an emergency, app users receive instant notification via their mobile devices.
Citizens can easily send comments and crime tips — anonymously if they wish — and place calls to Sandy Police Department with the touch of a button. They can notify the department about suspicious activity and easily send images such as graffiti through the app.
Anyone using Android, Windows or Apple platforms can download the app simply by going to the app store and searching for the Sandy Police Department app.
“The app provides an easy-to-use method for two-way communication between our department and community members,” said Chief Kim Yamashita. “It’s a valuable tool for keeping both the Sandy and Estacada Communities safe". Chief Yamashita explained that the app also allows the Sandy/Estacada Police Department to post photos and images, bulletins, a calendar of events, and even conduct community surveys.
The app supports the City Council and Department’s commitment to engage with the community in a timely manner through all sorts of social media. News that is distributed through the app also can be set to automatically post on the department’s social media accounts and distributed to the news media.
The Sandy Police Department app is not meant to replace calling 911 for crimes and emergencies in progress. Those experiencing an emergency situation should continue to call 911.
The Sandy Police Department app was developed under the name USPDhub by LogicTree IT Solutions, Inc. (
) of Citrus Heights, CA.
