Mobile Crime Tip Application Now Available At University Of Delaware

The University of Delaware (UD) and  Delaware.gov, in conjunction with  Delaware Interactive, LLC (DI), recently launched a new mobile Crime Tip application on both Android and  iOS platforms. The Mobile Crime Tips application provides a convenient method whereby anyone can submit a tip straight from his or her mobile device.

“Research tells us that by 2014, more people will access the web from a mobile device than from a traditional desktop computer,” said Chief Patrick Ogden, Chief of Police for the University of Delaware. “The UD Police Department is committed to leveraging the popularity of mobile apps. We already provide crime mapping information through our Raids Crime Mapping App and feel strongly that it is important to complement this service with a smartphone app. This is another tool for our citizens to anonymously share information that could be the key investigative link to solve a case.”

This mobile application responds to the administration’s eGovernment directive for enhanced citizen access. “We’re committed to creating new and convenient eGovernment tools for Delaware,” said Greg Hughes, Director of the  Delaware Government Information Center (GIC), which leads eGovernment efforts in the First State. “Delaware Governor Jack Markell has directed us to look for ways to make government more efficient, effective and open; mobile apps and eGovernment tools like this one will help us meet that goal.”

The UD Crime Tips application provides a mobile way for accepting crime tips, allowing users to report information such as location, activity description, subject description, vehicle description, and even a photograph. The user also has the option to submit anonymously. All crime tips are passed directly to UD’s Department of Public Safety’s team for assessment.

Although reported crime is relatively low at UD, it is still important for the community to remember that the university is not immune from criminal activity. Members of the UD community can assist Public Safety efforts by promptly reporting suspicious activity and by discouraging participation in careless practices and behavior. The Department of Public Safety works to create an environment where the campus community feels safe to learn, work, and live. They are committed to providing quality service and protection to the entire university community.
