FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - People who want to report a crime, access forms and submit confidential tips may now do so through a mobile app for Kentucky State Police.
But police say it's not for use in an emergency, and people should still use 911 for such events.
The app is available for iPhone, iPad and Android users by searching for "KSPOLICE."
Some of its features include a voice messaging tip line, ability to send a photo tip and access to the sex offender registry.
State police Commissioner Rodney Brewer said in a news release the app is also able to geo-target specific locations within the state with emergency push notifications, such as traffic issues, severe weather, missing persons or escaped prisoner notifications.
