Chattanooga Police Chief of Police David Roddy and representatives from MobilePD will announce the launch and demonstrate how to use the new free Chattanooga PD Mobile App on Friday.
Features include neighborhood crime tracking, real-time emergency notifications, and access to CPD's social media feeds. Users can also send tips to CPD with the option to remain anonymous.
The app is NOT a replacement for calling 9-1-1.
Officials said, "The Chattanooga Mobile Police Department app is part of the multi-year technology upgrades and advancements at the CPD. The free app is another way for the department to increase accessibility, transparency, and communication with members of the community."
