Southern Regional Police partners with Crimewatch for new website
SOUTHERN YORK COUNTY REGIONAL POLICE DEPARTMENT LAUNCH DIGITAL CRIME FIGHTING TOOL
York, PA (January 13th, 2021) – The Southern York County Regional Police Department announces the launch of a new website that gives people who use social networks and mobile devices an easier, more effective way to help fight crime and stay informed.
The new Southern York County Regional Police Department website was developed in partnership with CRIMEWATCH Technologies and is part of the CRIMEWATCH Network (crimewatch.net). This online tool gives the public access to crime and public safety-related information happening in their community. The website address will remain the same www.srpd.us
This new website is the perfect entry point for establishing better police and public partnerships. Technology gives us the opportunity to communicate with the public and the anonymity of the tech avoids the potential risks of sharing information with the police…several police departments throughout the region are having great success using this technology.
Southern York County Regional Police Department is the 8th York County based police department to go live on the CRIMEWATCH Network; a communications platform developed specifically for law enforcement agencies that allows for geographically targeted information sharing and intelligence gathering.
Local residents and students are strongly encouraged to visit SRPD.US or https://york.crimewatchpa.com/srpd to connect with police department social media sites, and/or download CRIMEWATCH Mobile from the Apple or Android App Store.
This resource allows residents to do the following:
- Sign up for a free account to receive e-mail alerts regarding crime committed in certain areas,
- Submit a tip to local law enforcement,
- View recent arrests and “most wanted” lists,
- Share information with others through social media, and
- Get connected with resources and services
