Austin Police Department has launched a new app full of interactive features, and now they want your help to market it. The app was announced at a press conference yesterday, along with Police Chief Art Acevedo’s plea to the public for a new slogan.
Highlights of the app include a way to submit anonymous tips, view real time crime maps, social media connections, a place to file some non-emergency reports online, and more. More of the app features can be found in Fox 7’s story. In a startup-friendly town like Austin, this makes total sense, especially since Acevedo is an avid Twitter user.
Slogan submissions will be narrowed down to 3-5 choices before the public gets to weigh in on the vote, with the final winner being taken to lunch by Acevedo (he’ll even buy, he mentions in the video).
