The Inglewood Police Department has released a free mobile app to connect with members
of the public through their smartphones and tablets.
The new app allows Inglewood PD to quickly disseminate emergency alerts, and post news
about missing persons, traffic delays, and weekly crime reports. In the event of an

about suspicious activity and easily send images such as graffiti through the app.
Anyone using Android, Windows or Apple platforms can download the app simply by going
to the app store and searching for the Inglewood Police Department app.

the news media.
