Ratings and Reviews
I love this ap but the scanner stopped working :(
This app needs to be upgraded to work with the latest operating systems. I hope you upgrade it as it is very useful to the community.
Please upgrade this app for The newest operating systems. Can not upload this current app.
Nice app, glad it exists
First of all, great job SCPD for getting this out there and getting out of the stone age. Sure its not always super up-to-date, the news section has one blog that sometimes goes a week without content, videos section is pretty sparse, too, but at least they're trying.
The crime maps/list is always eye-opening. Police scanner is nice to listen to while field dressing your rifle in your sunday best fatigues. Also you can you can report crimes from inside the app! "Help! Been stabbed! Bleeding out! Looking forward to hearing from you, all the best! John Q. Santa Cruz"
