Columbus Police App
Columbus Police recently introduced their new App. Among the most interesting features are the ability to submit Tips, including uploading photos. (This is a complement to the Columbus App’s ability to submit 311 reports for code issues – see below.)
There is also a feature for Recruiting. If you or someone you know is interested in what it would be like and what it would take to join our police division, check it out!
Other features include Alerts, and News, Victim’s rights information, social media links, maps of substation locations, and contact information to various bureaus and precincts.
The Columbus Police mobile app is free and available on the iOS App Store: Columbus Police on iOS App Store, and the Google Play Marketplace: Columbus Police on Google Play Marketplace, or by searching for “Columbus Police” on the respective App Store.

Columbus City App – “MyColumbus”
The City of Columbus has also had an App available for quite a while now. A most useful feature is the ability to Submit a Service Request. This includes 311 reports such as code violations, or need for Bulk Pickup. (311 is also available on the web site: 311 WEBSITE.)

So please make use of these Apps and web sites to “report, report, report” when issues of concern arise. Between the two you have easy ways to report code violations (“The car is parked on the lawn”), or law violations (“The car is blocking the sidewalk”). Of course there are man other resources on the Apps and web sites of our Columbus and Division of Police.
