  The city has released a new mobile app aimed at making it easier for the community to report and track crimes. Reno Public Radio's Julia Ritchey reports.

Called myRPD, the new app is meant to boost community policing by making it easier for regular citizens to report crimes. 

"It puts it all in one place, makes it really easy to access and it gets our community to engage with their police department," says Reno Interim Police Chief Jason Soto.
