Cottonwood residents can connect more easily with their Police Department

It’s now easier for Cottonwood residents to connect with their Police Department.  The Department has launched a smart phone application that will help police connect with, inform and engage citizens in a new way.  Community members will have greater access to police services at their fingertips, giving them more opportunities to share information.  Residents will also be able to access contact information, submit a tip, provide feedback and access their Neighborhood or School Safety Officer.  They can also search the area for sex offenders, view frequently asked questions or safety tips and access local and state web links.  The app is available at no cost at the Apple App and Google Play Store by searching “Cottonwood Police Department.”
