SafeTown Helps the Magnolia Police Department Improve Community Connections
The Magnolia (TX) Police Department has unveiled “SafeTown,” a powerful, easy to use suite of web-based and mobile apps that will connect and empower local law enforcement and citizens to make their community a better and safer place to live.
“The safety of our residents, business owners and visitors is always at the forefront of everything we do,” said Chief of Police Domingo Ibarra. “We are moving forward, utilizing state-of-the-art technology to interact with the citizens in our community. With the SafeTown Crime Maps app, for example, both current and future residents and business owners can see law enforcement related events handled by the Magnolia Police Department. This feature allows citizens to get a more accurate representation of events that occur within the boundaries of the City of Magnolia. This is an exciting day for the Magnolia Police Department as we are living up to our motto: ‘In Partnership With Our Community.’”
“The Magnolia Police Department relentlessly strives to implement modern technology to support modern day policing practices for the benefit of our entire community. SafeTown advances our community closer to an ideal ‘All-American City’ and we plan to roll-out additional SafeTown applications through-out 2013,” said Magnolia PD Executive Officer James Senegal.
SafeTown apps have the added benefit of being fully integrated with InterAct’s suite of public safety applications, ensuring that information is always accurate and up to date. “Integration with our core online applications are key,” said Mike McGarry, InterAct Senior Vice President and General Manager, InterAct Products. “The data that agencies want to share with citizens are in the core systems and the information shared by the citizens needs to be accessible through these same core systems in order to realize the full value of the public-to-public safety data sharing enabled by SafeTown.”
SafeTown Crime Maps App provides the following key features:
- With SafeTown’s Crime Maps App, you can view crime incidents and statistics for your neighborhood conveniently on a map.
- Understand what crimes are happening, where they are happening and when they are happening.
- Better visibility to historical crime data can help you partner with law enforcement and community watch organizations to create a safer community.
