The FBI has launched an innovative new smartphone app that is designed to make it easier for the general public as well as different sorts of public institutions to be informed of the identity and activities of bank robbers.

Bank robberies are a disturbingly common crime in the USA, which is why the FBI already launched a special Bank Robbers website dedicated to publicizing and tracking down bank robbers. Now, this functionality is being extended over to the mobile format in the form of an app that is available for free from the Apple App Store as well as Google Play.

One of the best features of this app is the ability to sign up for push notifications should a bank robbery occur near you. Ultimately, this app is all about sharing information with citizens to empower them to take remedial and protective action in the event of a crime.
