The Schertz Police Department would like to introduce their newest form of technology for our community members and the public to download to their IOS or Android smartphones at no cost. The new smartphone application includes numerous valuable features such as real-time notifications regarding breaking news, traffic issues, road closures, and inclement weather. Users will also have access to community services such as The Texas Department of Public Safety Sex Offender Registry Search, crime prevention programs, educational opportunities, and current news and events.
For those not connected to social media, Schertz Police Facebook posts can be viewed through the application, eliminating the need for a personal account. If you are new to the area or traveling through the City of Schertz, the resource mapping button can provide helpful location information within the city. There are twenty-five most utilized locations listed on the map, including our local hospital, city buildings, schools, emergency pet hospital, and grocery stores.
The Schertz Police Department understands the importance of keeping our community members apprised of police response in our city during a critical incident. The department strives to provide the most accurate information regarding a critical incident to the public as soon as possible. The main goal in supplying a smartphone application for our citizens is to increase effective communication and transparency between the police department and our community.
This new application is a fantastic resource that will allow people to play an active role in keeping our community safe. By utilizing the “Report an Incident” button, people will be directed to several options for submission of information, including narcotics activity, traffic complaints, suspicious situations, and cold case tips. If you notice that a streetlight is out or a pothole on the public roadway, you may easily access the “Report a Hazard” button from the main screen. Your concern will be directed to the appropriate contact to be addressed promptly by completing some basic information and clicking a button.
The Schertz Police Department Smartphone Application also includes a direct link to the Schertz Police page on Schertz.com where recruiting and hiring information, a phone directory, and access to weekly crime statistics and mapping can be found. Download the Schertz Police Department Smartphone Application today! Download the app from the App Store for IOS devices or Google Play for Android.
