    The MyPD app is a nice app for citizens to connect to their police department. The app itself is easy to use, has a simple – yet effective – GUI for the user. For the law enforcement agency, the app offers 22 different types of inquires or information pages to offer users. What’s really nice is that agencies don’t have to use all 22 features; they can pick and choose and only display those features on the app.

    The app doesn’t appear to exchange confidential information; it is focused on resources for the public. The authors stress there is no sign in, so using the app and submitting crime tips can be completely anonymous. Another nice thing about the app is there is no advertising.

    A well written app and I think the biggest downfall to law enforcement agencies is that the app does not carry the name of the law enforcement agency that uses it. Citizens who go to the app store and type in their local agency name will not find the app. They must search for MyPD and then when they load the app onto their phone they can select the law enforcement agency for their area.
