New Online Community Is Dedicated to Public Safety Apps

The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) has introduced a new website dedicated to apps that are geared towards public safety and emergency response.

It’s called AppComm, and it serves as an online community for public safety apps designed to be used by both the general public and first responders. Users can use the site to search for, rate and comment on many public safety apps. The site includes links to download the apps from external websites and the various app stores.

APCO’s executive director Derek Poarch explained the idea for the community in a statement: “AppComm was created to provide a single, trusted online forum where public safety professionals, the general public, and app developers can rate and comment on apps, submit ideas for new apps to serve unmet public safety needs, and suggest additional apps for inclusion on the site.”
