The Uganda Police Force application for information sharing and dissemination(MOBI APP) has been expanded to now include a map that can help a person seeking help to locate a police station or post nearest to him or her.
Deputy police spokesperson, ACP Polly Namaye, says contacts of officers from different policing units are accessible using this application.
The App, when downloaded to an individual’s phone can quickly help the nearest police to connect a person in need of help to the patrollers and other response units in the callers locality for a faster response.
A team has been carefully selected to manage this app, to receive and manage information shared on this app and to connect to response units in case of need.
“We believe this will reduce response time to incidents, thus minimising pain and loss,” she said.
The App will also help to maintain a record of lost and found properties such as National Identification cards.
Already, one can access a list of lost and found National ID’s being kept at different Police station using this App.
A record of missing persons reported to Police can also be accessed using the MOBI APP.
Express penalties given to drivers can also be traced using the MOBI APP, and it is a simple process.
“We therefore encourage everyone to download the MOBI APP and follow the simple steps to personalise it to one’s phone. This will ease access and information sharing with the nearest Police in any area in Uganda.”
Easy steps to download the application: simply go to play store in/on your phone (for smart phone users), download UPF MOBI APP and follow the steps to personalise the app to your phone.
