Manhunt: Police Tools is a resource for first responders that helps you quickly visualize a search area and manage an incident.
Pursuit Map: This allows you to predict a search area that a fleeing suspect could be in after a foot pursuit. It uses terrain and elapsed time since the suspect was seen to grow a radius around where you should be searching. You can also place squad car and officer pins on the map to see that you have a proper perimeter in place.
Radius Search: If you are tracking a cell-phone and are being provided the GPS coordinates and an accuracy value you can display that on a map to see where you should be searching. You can also map out a radius of an evacuation area if you are on a hazardous materials call.
Distance Check: This shows you how far apart two pins are in multiple units of measure. This can be helpful for seeing if someone is in violation of a drug or gang free zone or maybe in violation of a city ordinance with distance limitations.
Not what I expected... This would be mainly for a supervisor or hq to use in order to keep track of positions. But not for an officer to use while in a pursuit. Second, if I click on a street corner to add an officer or patrol car it adds the icon half a block away somewhere else.
Clever app. Add it to your toolbox
