New APD Smartphone App Aims to Enhance Safety and Communication

The Albuquerque Police Department (APD) introduces its new smartphone app, Atlas One. Atlas One is designed to be more user-friendly and will provide an improved experience for community and police communication and interaction.

Users are asked to first delete the previous APD app from their phones, as it is no longer functional. Then, install the new app by searching for “Atlas One” in your app store, downloading it and creating an account.

You can report non-emergency situations from the app, send messages and receive notification replies to your sent messages. As always, report emergencies by calling 911. To learn more about the new APD app, visit:
