Have you ever seen flashing blue lights in your neighborhood and wanted to know what was going on? Do you want to find out how safe your neighborhood really is? Now you can, through a new partnership between the Gulf Shores Police Department and the creators of CrimeReports.
“Providing reliable, timely information to our citizens is one of our top priorities,” Chief Edward Delmore said. “And partnering with CrimeReports gives us the ability to keep the public informed on a regular basis as to what is going on in the community.”
He added that the public can access the crime map 24 hours a day through the website or through the CrimeReports iPhone app, available for free download in the Apple iTunes store. The new service even lets residents sign up for free email alerts, so they can stay on top of crime in their neighborhood. “Information is power,” Chief Delmore added. “And we hope that giving the community this information will help them prevent crime in their neighborhoods.”
The CrimeReports service only costs the Gulf Shores Police Department $49/month. The department is one of over 850 other law enforcement agencies across North America who are sharing their crime information with the public through the map, like Baltimore, Boston, San Jose, San Francisco, Portland, Washington D.C., Los Angeles County, and more.
You can access your local crime map and sign up for daily, weekly, or monthly email crime alerts at http://www.CrimeReports.com or at the Gulf Shores Police.
