How Relay is Helping Communities Through the COVID-19 Outbreak

Due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19, police agencies across the country have adopted Relay into their community. Relay is a platform that allows residents and law enforcement to communicate directly with one another via a smartphone app. What’s more, officers can send out geo-based broadcasts that notifies every resident within a specific area. 

 

Recently, Relay has been used by police agencies to broadcast alerts to their residents about safety restrictions, store closures and other hazards with relation to COVID-19. Relay has proven to be a great tool for citizens to maintain social distancing while still reporting incidents to local law enforcement. An officer from the Oshkosh Police Department talks more about how Relay has helped their community during the outbreak. You can watch the video here. (shorturl.at/yJNS2)
