The Michigan State Police mobile app is available now for Michiganders to download and stay informed.

The new mobile app went live this week, and is available for free for every mobile device. The goal is to create a better connection with residents and the MSP post that serves them. The description on the MSP download page is pretty straight forward.

MSP Mobile allows users to follow the post that serves their community or any post of their choosing. Users can opt to receive push notifications that will instantly alert them to traffic crashes, arrests, criminal investigations, community events and other education and prevention information. Users can submit crime tips directly to MSP, with the option to upload supporting photos and videos.

The MSP is promoting the app across their social media pages, along with some of the different things the app can help with.

You can download the new app here.
