Crime Stoppers Offers New Mobile App

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department has partnered with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Crime Stoppers program in developing the latest tool in crime prevention. This innovative technology will allow our community the ability to assist the CMPD in reducing crime by using the Crime Stoppers mobile app.

Citizens now have the ability to submit crime tips anonymously through telephone, email, video, or photo. The technology also features some of the CMPD's most wanted and can guide citizens to the nearest law enforcement office, should they need assistance. The smart device application has one touch dialing to call Crime Stoppers or the nearest law enforcement office. Charlotte-Mecklenburg is the first Crime Stoppers organization in the southeast to employ this innovative technology.

Members of the Crime Stoppers board will be available to demonstrate the new app and answer any questions the media may have concerning the technology at 12:30 p.m., on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, at CMPD headquarters.

For more information or to become a subscriber, please go to iTunes, Google Play or the Blackberry Platform and download the app for free.
