Curious of the crime stats in Surrey? There’s an app for that.
The Surrey RCMP detachment is trying to get with the times, proposing new ways of using technology to share information.
Sgt. Paul Hayes says it’s proposing an email system and a Police App to better connect with the public.
“Whether it be the Surrey news release that we send out, or RCMP events coming up, or crime statistics, or anything else we think might be valuable to the citizens of Surrey.”
A report to council says just five years ago, 95 per cent of detachment website traffic came from a desktop computer.
Today, mobile devices and tablets account for 50 per cent of all website visits.
