Launching a Totally Reliable iOS App to Log Police Activity
After more than a century, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) is retiring the handwritten memo books carried by police officers and replacing them with an iOS Mobile App, The New York Times reports. After February 17th, 2020, officers begun recording their detailed activity logs in an iOS app on department-issued iPhones.
The app will send notes to a department database, which offers a few benefits over the physical notebooks. It could eliminate potential abuses, like faking entries in order to get search warrants, and headaches, like having to interpret illegible handwriting. Plus, individual officers won’t have to keep track of dozens of notebooks. Instead the logs will be managed in the database, and officers will be able to do quick database searches through the app when they’re in the field.
The Megsoft team is proud to have helped in the development of this mobile application.
