TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Oro Valley Police Department is stepping up its game on how it receives crime tips, as easy as playing on your phone.

They've developed an app where residents can send in tips, take pictures and send it directly to the police department.

The first thing that we should make clear is that the app is for non-emergencies. Oro Valley Police say the app is just another tool people can use to communicate with the police.

You can download the app to any smart-phone for free. Just go to "My PD" and find the state you want. The app will list the different departments in Arizona that have the "My PD" app.

Once you download it, you have a list of several things you can do. You can contact someone in the department, get news alerts and commend an officer.  You can also submit a tip. Just choose the time of crime, type in the location, and list the parties involved. You also have the ability to take a picture of the incident and send it in.

The Oro Valley Police Department is the first in Southern Arizona to have this app.
