The Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office, which is responsible for policing and safety in the city of New Iberia in Lousiana, has launched an innovative new police app that is designed to make it easier for citizens to take a proactive approach to their engagements with law enforcement, whether for regular functional issues or matters of high sensitivity and potential hazard.
This free app allows residents to submit tips about potential crimes and concerns, helping them play a proactive role by assisting local enforcement with community-sourced information. The police app also lists information about inmates as well as known sex offenders. Additionally, it also helps citizens evade avoidable troubles with the law by directing them to online methods to pay their taxes.
By tapping into a technology that is widely used by citizens, the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office is looking to boost engagement with citizens and work with them to create a safer community.
