JCPD is the first agency in the Greater Atlanta area to launch an open data portal, enabling citizens, academics, and media to access police data in an interactive online format. Aptly named Police to Citizen, or P2C, the portal gives access that includes police department statistics, community reports, and the department’s progress towards key goals. JCPD also offers a free mobile app called JCPD4ME for iPhones and Androids that allow people to access several services with their cell phones.
