Published 10:46 PDT, Thu May 14, 2020
A new community safety app is aiming to keep Richmond residents safe.
The app, which builds on the partnership between police and public, allows residents and businesses to play an active and vital role in keeping Richmond safe by being connected, informed and engaged.
“The City of Richmond Community Safety app demonstrates our commitment to a safe and resilient community,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “This app provides citizens with direct access to crime prevention and safety information, as well as reporting tools, from the convenience of their mobile phone.”
“We are always looking for new and creative ways to engage with the residents of Richmond, and to keep them updated and informed in respect to police and public safety matters,” said Superintendent Will Ng, Officer in Charge of Richmond RCMP. “This Community Safety app is another way we can continue to keep Richmond safe by leveraging the reach of social networking and the power of today’s mobile technology.”
The app allows Richmond residents and businesses to report a crime, commend an officer or file a complaint. It also includes other features like news releases, emergency alerts and broadcasts, a criminal activity map, crime prevention information, an events calendar and details on Richmond RCMP’s programs and services.
The app is now available for download in the Apple and Android app stores. Search for Richmond RCMP and click to download.
