The Stockton Police Mobile Phone App has many functions...from videos with shopping safety tips to reporting graffiti on buildings.

Police are hoping the app will keep people more informed and help them get more involved  reporting crimes.

Stockton Police Officer Joe Silva says many people want to know about crime where they live.

"Big component is crime mapping, they are going to be able to zero in on their neighborhoods to see exactly what kind of crime trends are occurring, they are also going to be able to see up to date news."

- Joe Silva, Stockton Police Officer

 

Silva says people will be able to send in photos, receive alerts, and follow police on Facebook

The free app is available through the itunes store and Google Play for Android.
