Click. Connect. Protect.
The City of Richmond, together with Richmond RCMP, is pleased to announce the launch of a new Community Safety app. This Community Safety app builds on the partnership between police and public, and allows residents and businesses to play an active and vital role in keeping Richmond safe by being connected, informed and engaged.
"The City of Richmond Community Safety app demonstrates our commitment to a safe and resilient community," said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. "This app provides citizens with direct access to crime prevention and safety information, as well as reporting tools, from the convenience of their mobile phone."
"We are always looking for new and creative ways to engage with the residents of Richmond, and to keep them updated and informed in respect to police and public safety matters," said Superintendent Will Ng, Officer in Charge of Richmond RCMP. "This Community Safety app is another way we can continue to keep Richmond safe by leveraging the reach of social networking and the power of today’s mobile technology."
The Community Safety app provides Richmond residents and businesses with the ability to report a crime, commend an officer or file a complaint – all from the palm of their hand. Additional features include access to news releases, emergency alerts/broadcasts, criminal activity map, crime prevention information, an events calendar, and details on the many programs and services offered by Richmond RCMP.
The Community Safety app is available for download in the Apple and Android app stores. Search for Richmond RCMP, then click to download and connect with the City of Richmond and Richmond RCMP for information on how to protect yourself, your online identity and your property.
The Community Safety app is a joint initiative between the City of Richmond and Richmond RCMP. For more information on the Community Safety app, visit www.richmond.ca/communitysafetyapp.
