Columbus Police Mobile App Sets Record Number of Downloads in First Week

app release

Columbus, Ohio – After one week, the Columbus Police Mobile App has surpassed the developer’s record number of initial downloads following launch. With over 5,000 downloads in seven days, Columbus’ app has surpassed all previous launches across the nation by MobilePD.  

“We are excited about the success of the app, and tips are already rolling in,” said Councilmember Emmanuel V. Remy. “This resource is a tremendous asset for folks in the Columbus community, and I’m thrilled to see over 5,000 downloads in the first week.”   

“After strategically timing the launch of the app a few days ahead of Red, White & Boom, CPD had a successful test run with push alerts downtown surrounding the event,” said Columbus Division of Police Chief Thomas Quinlan. “We look forward to testing the capabilities of this tool as more and more folks across Columbus download it to their devices.”

With over 100 app launches over the last decade, developer MobilePD said the launch of the Columbus Police Mobile App has surpassed all other launches during the first week. “We’re blown away by the speed at which Columbus has begun accessing their Division of Police’s mobile app,” said Kushyar Kasraie, CEO of MobilePD. “With 5,421 downloads in week one, the City of Columbus has demonstrated a desire for more information about their community.”

Developed by MobilePD, an Austin-based technology company, the Columbus Police Mobile app helps residents stay connected wherever they are by offering mobile access to news, crime maps, social media, alerts and more. It even allows the public to submit anonymous tips to the department. Anyone can download the application for free today through the iOS App Store and the Google Play Marketplace.
