New Policing App

TAYSIDE “SHOWING REAL INNOVATION” WITH NEW POLICING APP - ROSEANNA

The Scottish National Party’s Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Member of the Scottish Parliament for Perthshire South & Kinross-shire, has welcomed the launch by Tayside Police of its Community Smartphone App – the first policing app of its kind in Scotland.

Speaking today (Tuesday) Ms Cunningham said:

“Tayside Police has already established itself as a bit of a trailblazer in encouraging the use of social media and I am delighted that it is yet again showing the way with this new app.

“It is absolutely essential for good community relations that our police continue to use all modern means of communication to engage with local people and by developing an app for smartphone users, Tayside are showing real innovation. 

“There is very strong evidence that increased visibility of bobbies on the beat has both a deterrent effect on crime and a positive impact on the fear of crime felt by law-abiding citizens.  In this digital age, developments like this give our police officers a digital visibility which can have a similar effect.

“I am certain that this new smartphone app will mean improved engagement between police and community, quicker communication of important information relating to police incidents and puts Tayside Police at the forefront of modern policing.”
