Hollister police adds features to smartphone app

The Hollister Police Department recently upgraded its smartphone app to include vandalism tips and street hazards like potholes, standing water and downed signs, according to a statement.

According to the HPD:

The City of Hollister Streets Department will receive each report directly from the app to facilitate more efficient reporting of hazards. There will be an option to actually photograph the hazard “if the reporting party is able to do it safely” said Chief Westrick.

Vandalism tips can also include photographs with the location provided by the reporting party. The vandalism tips will be used for abatement and some reporting.

The Hollister Police Departments smartphone app can be downloaded by searching for MYPD in the both the Google Playstore or Apples App Store. The app can also be found at MYPDApp.com.
