Earlier today, Canyon Police Department announced they have joined the Neighbors app. The app is designed to make it easier for police and citizens stay in touch regarding crime and safety events.

The aim, of course, is to make Canyon a safe community for those who live there.

The app will give not only police, but citizens a lot of options for keeping in touch. According to a post from the Canyon Police Department on Facebook, the app will allow them to view, post, and respond to crime and safety information; and allow them to submit "video requests" of active investigations. You can see the post below.

They do point out that the app will not be monitored around the clock. For emergencies, you should always call 911.

Still, it will be nice to have the app and be in the know regarding what is going on; especially when it pertains to areas we live in.
