NYPD Lends Citizens Unofficial Badges With Mobile App Release

An under-the-radar app release from the NYPD, simply called "NYPD", will allow citizens of New York City (and elsewhere) to assist in bringing justice to The Big Apple through viewing wanted lists and rewards, crime statistics, breaking news, and additionally submitting crime tips via SMS messages. Unlike MTA's Subway Time app, the free NYPD iPhone app is easy-to-use but can also be easy to abuse, considering its high volume of information; paranoid New Yorkers beware!
