Department's Mobile Apps Featured in Western City Magazine
The Santa Cruz Police Department's mobile apps (for iPhone and Android) were featured in this month's Western City Magazine. Click here to read the story. Western City Magazine is published monthly by the League of California Cities and is received by over 10,000 public sector leaders throughout the state of California. The department's app was part of a feature on technological innovations in public safety and included programs developed by Redwood City, Santa Monica, San Carlos, Rancho Cucamonga and Cloverdale. The apps were developed in partnership with two recent UCSC graduates - they ended up starting a company called MobilePD that helps law enforcement provide outreach tools to the community.
