San Jose PD Works to Connect With Community

The department recently unveiled a new "Department Direction" that makes use of a new mobile app, called CityConnnect. aimed at engaging the community while freeing up valuable resources.

He said that residents can now log onto their phones and make a report or they can log on to the website and get some of the information they used to ask an officer when they would see one out in the field.

"It's not that we're trying to lower the amount of services we're able to provide, it's just a smarter way to provide those services and educate the public on how they themselves can do a lot of the things you used to call a police officer out there to do."
