i-POLICE: Internet-based, informative, and interactive police service mobile app

Do you want to reach out to police officers in times of emergency? Do you wish to inform police units on any complaints and concerns in your area? Do you want to get access to police services faster and easier?
 
Fret no more! The Ilocos Norte Police Provincial Office (INPPO) recently launched an internet-based, informative, and interactive police service mobile app which can be downloaded by Android users.
 
Dubbed “i-POLICE,” the INPPO’s mobile service app, stands for:
 
i-Ilocos
P-olice
O-nline
L-aw enforcement
I-nvestigation
C-ommunity affairs; and
E-mergency services

Governor Matthew Marcos Manotoc commended the police officers led by PCOL Julius Suriben for creating a mobile application that will ensure the public a direct access to INPPO.
 
In his message, Suriben said this is the first police mobile app to have been launched in the country.
 
“On behalf of the manang and manong police of Ilocos Norte Police Provincial Office, I’d like to extend my sincerest words of gratitude to the provincial government of Ilocos Norte, with the active leadership of Hon. Matthew Marcos Manotoc. If I am not mistaken, this is the first police mobile app in the country today”, said Suriben.
