LAUNCH OF NEW MOBILE APP FOR POLICE, FIRE AND OTHER CITY SERVICES
New Mobile Application
The City of Ashland Police Department in conjunction with Ashland Fire and Rescue is pleased to launch our new mobile application for IOS, Android and Windows phones.
The free app, titled 'Ashland Oregon Police,' is another tool to connect our emergency service providers with members of the Ashland community through their smartphones.
Both the Ashland Police Department and Ashland Fire & Rescue can send "push alerts" about critical events and safety concerns to our app users. In turn, citizens can use the app to notify the City about a variety of non-emergency issues such as graffiti, weed abatement concerns, lost and found items and more. It also provides easy one touch dialing for non-emergency calls.
"This is another means to connect with people in our community including those who don't have social media accounts. It is not a replacement for reporting an emergency. In the event of an emergency, always call 9-1-l," says Chief O'Meara.
The app is available from the Apple Store, Google Play and through the Windows store.
