Cops and Robbers 2.0: App Tells You Where Police Are

Cops and Robbers 2.0: App Tells You Where Police Are

An new police app takes the game of cops and robbers to a different level: concerned citizens – plus hooligans, miscreants and various and sundry – in Surrey, U.K. can now see where the police are.

“We want to provide communities with the information they need so that they are empowered to work together with the police to tackle the issues that matter to them locally,” policing Minister Nick Herbert told the Shropshire Star.

The free Surrey Police app, rated suitable for ages 12+, provides live updates the officers who are part of the Safer Neighbourhood teams as they investigate various incidents from suspicious activities to traffic accidents.

It currently only covers the Runnymede area of Surrey but there are plans expand it nationwide.

Not much emphasis is placed on reporting crimes (although you can interact with comments and pictures) meaning you’d likely need another app like the snitch ones we’ve reported on.

Wonder if the app has them check in à la Foursquare when they’re on breaks so you can see how often and where they stop off for a spot of tea.
