(Fishers, Indiana) – Fishers Police Department’s CrimeWatch app, which has served residents since 2016, is now Relay. Relay, a community engagement and crime prevention app, has the same great features residents have used to report hundreds of incidents in Fishers, but now includes a streamlined user interface, and improved feedback and updates to residents who submit issues. More than 6,000 Fishers residents use the app to report non-emergency crimes to the Fishers Police Department. Relay is free to download via the Apple App and Google Play stores.
“The Fishers Police Department continues to make investments in technology to better serve our residents,” remarked Fishers Police Chief Ed Gebhart. “These investments are already paying off as our officers in the field receive timely detailed information that allow them to investigate matters more efficiently.”
The re-launch of the app comes on the heels of last month’s announcement by Fishers Police Department and HSE Schools for a new app-based tips program which replaced the former Text-a-Tip program. Residents can access the Fishers PD Crime Tips app via the Apple App and Google Play stores.
Fishers residents now have several ways to report crime and suspicious activity directly to the Fishers Police Department:
Call or text 9-1-1 for all emergencies
Relay all non-emergency crimes and suspicious activity via the Relay app (former Fishers CrimeWatch app)
General crime tips or tips on criminal or disruptive behavior at HSE Schools can be submitted through the Fishers PD Crime Tips app.
