Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police following its aim to maximise the security and safety of citizens of Peshawar has launched a Mobile App that will ensure immediate help in case of any crime.

The App can be downloaded from the KP Police website, Google PlayStore and the general public can use it in an event of burglary, theft, murder or even a road accident.

The Inspector General Police KP IGP Salahuddin Khan Mehsud said that “App would reduce police response time and increase the level of coordination between police and the masses.”

The app works quite efficiently and it will inform the police immediately about a crime by automatically pointing out the location of the crime scene with the help of Google maps. The users in need will just have to tap a single option and the concerned police stations would be notified. Hence, the city patrol force would be able to reach the crime site immediately.

The app named “Peshawar Police” is currently available to install from Google Play store only available for Android smartphones. The app has various sections such as “Call 15” feature, “Report Incident” button and information about “Nearest Police Station”. But most importantly the “Help” option in the app will let you inform police instantly so they could aid you in case of danger.

In addition, a person has to register for the app by providing personal credentials in order to use the app. A mapping solution induced by Google Maps presents all locations of nearest police stations in your area. Pictures and videos of crimes and other incidents could also be shared with the police department with the help of this app.
