Help Solve Low-Level Local Crime With Manchester Police's iOS App

By Gary Cutlack on at

Greater Manchester Police has launched an iOS app, which uses location-based services to fill users in on local events, missing people bulletins and even features the unsettling option of browsing any wanted appeals in your surrounding area.

The free app offers boring old features like community group listings and locations of your local police stations, should you ever want to hand something in like a good citizen, with users also able to contact police through the app if a missing person's face looks familiar or the perpetrator of a more serious crime needs grassing up.

The app was developed in-house by GMP staff and they are aware that ignoring Android users is a very serious modern tech crime, with the team promising that a Google version of the app will be ready this spring. [iTunes via TNW]
