Littleton Police offer hyper-local alerts
Using ping4alerts!, LPD can broadcast an alert to a specifically-defined location in the LPD's jurisdiction. All ping4alerts! subscribers who are in, or traveling through that location, will receive an alert via an attention-getting audio or customized voice message and pop-up text with links to further instructions, directions, photographs, videos, etc. Ping4alerts! awakens phones that are in sleep mode. It also has an "A-Tip" feature that allows users to deliver anonymous tips to law enforcement. The app works over GPS and cellular networks as well as in Wi-Fi hotspots and doesn't tap data plan minutes or place undue strain on smartphone batteries.
