Police are getting ‘smart’

Dyfed Powys Police is the first force in the UK to launch a bilingual app for smartphones.

As part of the Force's commitment to provide accessible services for its rural communities, the app provides information on what the local police team are doing in communities. It includes information on Police stations, the range of services provided as well as the latest news from the Force.

Assistant Chief Constable Carl Langley said: “This app is just one way our residents can keep up to date with what is going on in their community. Visitors can find their nearest police station as well as information on the local police team close to them. We are proud to be the first force in Wales with a bilingual smartphone app.

“We want to make sure people can access information about the Force, what we do and the issues in local communities that officers and PCSO’s are working to tackle either with other agencies or with the public.

“We recognise that we need to provide information in a number of ways, and this smartphone app is one of the new ways we are using. We are currently looking at what services we can do on line and are developing ways of making it as easy as possible for people to contact us in the way that best suits them.

“There are local teams in each community people can talk to, for non-emergency’s people can call 101 or when an immediate response is required we have 999.”

It is free to download the bilingual app on iPhones and Androids, and the information automatically updates when you are in an area with 3G signal.
