The Lompoc Police Departments Smart Phone Mobile App was introduced to the public in the first week of November 2015. Since its launch the app has been downloaded 6,400 times. The smart phone app has increased the communication between the city residents and its police department. A recent arrest of a wanted subject is an example of this.
On 1/13/16 at approximately 2244 hours, Lompoc Police Dispatch received a call regarding a wanted subject. The caller wished to be anonymous, but stated they had seen the wanted subject from the Lompoc Police App at a local 7-11 business. Lompoc Police Officers responded and located Joshua James Tubbs in a vehicle in the parking lot of the 7-11. Tubbs had a no-bail warrant for his arrest and was taken into custody without incident. Tubbs had been on the run for over 6 months and in violation of his probation terms.
If this citizen had not seen the wanted information and picture of Joshua Tubbs he would not have been arrested that night and may have still been outstanding. The Police Department wants to remind its citizens that in no way does the smart phone app replace calling 911 for emergencies. The app is designed to provide citizens with a communication tool to assist the department in keeping the Lompoc Community safe.
Press Release Prepared by:
Young students and teachers at El Rancho School in Carmichael were just beginning their day in their elementary and preschool classrooms when Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver was gunned down in a nearby parking lot. The tragic event set off a two-county shooting rampage, forcing thousands of school children into lockdown.
Principal Holly Olson acted quickly to keep students safe, then turned to technology to immediately notify parents of the situation as the sounds of sirens and helicopters pierced the normally quiet neighborhood where the high-speed chase began.
Using the inSchoolHub mobile app, Olson sent three alerts to parents: The first one notified them of the lockdown order and that their children were safe, the second one assured parents there was no need to pick up their students early, and the final one indicated the lockdown was lifted. The communication reassured parents and prevented confusion among families and faculty.
"Using inSchoolHub was a huge timesaver," said Olson. "It's much more efficient than phone calls and emails to parents, especially when it comes to an emergency situation. I was able to keep parents updated in minutes while I tended to the safety of their children. That peace of mind — for parents and for me — is priceless."
Olson only needed her smart phone, password and keys when she left her office to deal with the crisis at the school. While the inSchoolHub emergency communication system is easy and efficient to use, she noted, "Having the LogicIT Solutions customer service representative in my pocket for back-up made all the difference in the world."
Parents responded well to the inSchoolHub emergency alert system, and Olson said her goal is to get all of her students' parents to download the free app.
