A mobile app for the rapid response and effective crime control in the city was launched by the Metropolitan Police Commissioner Office (MPCO), Ranipokhari on Sunday (July 5, 2015).
Called ‘Hamro Police’, the app enables smart phone users in the Kathmandu Valley to swiftly report incidents of crime and access the nearest police office. The app, which is available on Google Play, helps users receive police alerts and send SMS to report incidents of crime to the police.
Shedding more light on the initiative, Metropolitan Police Commissioner AIG Bigyan Raj Sharma explained that smartphone users, with the help of Hamro Police app, can report incidents of crime with pictorial or documentary evidence along with the exact location of the crime scene immediately. He also urged everyone to download the app. It is their effort to make our community safer by assessing prompt response and reports of the crimes as they happen.
The app is already doing well on Google Play amongst the new releases since it’s recent launch.
