The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office has released an exceptionally useful new crime reporting app that is designed to make it easier than ever for residents of the region and surrounding area to reach out to police in the event that they witness or become aware of some sort of crime.

The app makes use of geo-location technology to help police quickly and accurately identify where a crime alert is coming from, so that they can go about responding to it in a timely manner.

While police do their best to identify and respond to crimes, it's impossible for them to be everywhere at once. This is where the PBSO crime-reporting app comes in. By allowing citizens to use their ubiquitous smartphones as a crime-reporting tool, the app allows police and residents to work together to fight the scourge of crime in the Palm Beach County area.
