VPD releases new crime app for officers

| March 13, 2017

VALDOSTA – Most of us use our smart-phones for social media. The Valdosta Police Department is now using them to fight crime.

They’ve launched an app called ”Data-Viz.” The app will be used for crime analysis.

Equipped with maps showing incidents, it’s connected to a live feed from the 911 call center, notifying officers in real time.

David Vondersmith, a member of the department, says he’s excited for the new app.

”The ability to be sitting at home at night when you’re off duty and getting something right there instead of the next day. Criminals don’t wait around until the morning when everyone is in there office.”

The app isn’t just for the department. Community members can use ”Data-VIz” to send officers an anonymous tip.
