The Ashland Police Department in Kentucky launched a new application that is designed to let the public interact with law enforcement.
The new application is available for smart phones and allows residents to be up-to-date in real time of criminal activity, road closures or other emergency notifications, according to a news release from the Ashland Police Department. The application also will allow people to report information to officers anonymously. There is no charge for the service. It is available online for iPhone and Android phones.
The application also allows access to the city of Ashland website so users can pay bills online. The police department said it's the only tool of it's kind currently in Kentucky and the Tri-State.
