Dear PoliceOne Member,

Yesterday, we posted news about an innovative new iPhone app being used by Brockton, Mass. cops to identify suspects using photos. The app, which uses biometrics to match suspect photos with entries in a database, has significant implications for suspect identification in the future.

It's just the latest of a growing number of mobile apps that have practical and beneficial uses for cops on the job. For more, read our recent round up of other useful mobile apps for cops, and shoot us a note with any others you know of that officers should know about.
