ALBUQUERQUE – The Albuquerque Police Department is launching a new mobile app providing real-time information at your fingertips.

APD formerly had the ABQ Police App where the public could submit tips, find a link to file reports and access the department’s social media accounts. Now, APD is switching over to the Atlas One platform, enhancing capabilities to connect to the public.

Once the app has been downloaded, alerts can be catered to an individual’s preferences whether that be for minor, up to extreme alerts.

Through the app, APD will send push alerts for incidents such as missing persons flyers, wanted posters, traffic incidents causing road closures and school related incidents that APD is assisting with.

The alert system will not only come through the app on your mobile device, but it will also be posted to APD’s TwitterMyABQPD2accounts.

Although the app has messaging capabilities, in case of an emergency please call 911. For non-emergencies, please call 242-COPS. Reports can be filed online, or in person at any area sub-station.

The Atlas One app can be downloaded on both the Apple App store and on Google Play. If you have the old version of the APD app please remove from your devices.
