POLICE DEPARTMENT’S NEW & IMPROVED MOBILE APP NOW AVAILABLE

 

RIVERSIDE, CA – The Riverside Police Department is proud to unveil its new and improved mobile application called “Atlas One.”  The app is available in the Apple and Android app stores by searching for “Atlas One,” and is a free download to the public. 

 

Atlas One will allow us to continue sharing important alerts regarding traffic collision road closures, at-risk missing persons, and significant police activity we want our community to be aware of.  It will provide residents and business owners with one-stop-shop access to important resources, and even allow people to submit tips to help solve crimes and address various livability issues within their neighborhood.

 

In addition, the application allows two-way communications using our social media platforms of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Nextdoor.  It also includes links to report certain types of crimes online, learn about recruitment and career opportunities, and retrieve general information about all the services the Riverside Police Department provides.  What is also great is the user now has access to every public safety agency nationwide that is part of the Atlas One platform.

 

“Riverside PD has once again proven they are leading the way with cutting edge crime fighting technology, and more importantly, keeping residents informed, engaged, and safe,” said Kushyar Kasraie, CEO of Atlas One. “As the first public safety agency in Southern California to adopt this new technology, the Riverside community should be proud of the proactive steps Riverside PD is taking to increase transparency, trust and overall public safety.”
