Mass. State Police unveil brand new app
By Alana Cerrone
Massachusetts State Police made a big announcement this weekend…the release of their brand new app.
The smartphone application has several features, including push notifications with geo-fencing, a function that no other law enforcement agency is using.
This feature allows Mass. State Police to immediately notify users with geographically-configured real-time alerts. This will help immensely with public communication during major events including this year's Boston Marathon.
The app's alert function pushes a notification to the top of the user's phone for advisories like traffic situations, missing persons or wanted suspects.
A formal rollout will take place later in the week where officials will highlight the app's features.
