Police embrace phone idea
THE police have welcomed the sale of the UK Crime Guide App, which makes information already on their website accessible for mobile phones.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police said: “Making information available to the public will help to raise awareness of how the police service is working to reduce crime and disorder in communities.
“It will also help reduce the fear of crime, and in areas where crime is occurring, provide encouragement to the public to support the police with information and remind people to remain watchful.
“The information is already available via www.police.uk.
“The public can access street-level crime information simply by entering their street name or postcode into the website.”
