The Michigan State Police are encouraging Michigan residents to download their free smartphone app to receive breaking news and information happening in our communities and around the state. The mobile phone app is available in both the Apple and Google App stores.
App users can follow the state police post that is closest to their zip code or the post of their choice. St. Clair County is covered by Post 34, headquartered in Lapeer, while Sanilac County is covered by Post 33, headquartered in Caro. There are troopers stationed in the Port Huron and Sandusky Police offices, as well.
Through the app, users can choose what kind of notifications they want to receive, ranging in topics from traffic information, criminal investigations, arrests, and community events, along with prevention and educational information. The app also gives users access to information such as Michigan’s Most Wanted fugitives, Offender Registries, cold cases, and information about specific state police posts. Users can upload pictures and crime tips right from the app, as well. To find the app, search for “Michigan State Police” on your mobile phone’s app store.
