FORT MYERS POLICE DEPARTMENT JOINS NATION-WIDE SAFETY NETWORK, ATLAS ONE

 

FMPD partners with Atlas One, a location-based safety network that will keep Fort Myers residents safe and informed. 

 

City of Fort Myers – November 23, 2021 – Fort Myers Police Department today announced it has joined Atlas One, a location-based public safety network that sends alerts to your smartphone when you or your loved ones are in harm’s way. The free mobile application gives the public unprecedented access to city services. Residents can download Atlas One on their iOS or Android smartphone devices starting today. This application will replace our existing TRUEBLUE application, with many advanced, user-friendly features.

 

The app allows FMPD to send geo-fenced push notification alerts when a public safety concern occurs near a user’s current location, or near places residents care about, such as their home, school, or office. Alerts are interactive, and can include text, photos, videos, documents, and even voice recordings. In addition, residents will have a one-stop-shop platform to access existing FMPD services and resources, such as our public records portal, crime tips, interactive guides, website, community engagement services, social media accounts, and contact information. By the end of 2021, users will be able to explore nearby incidents and events.

 

“We are extremely excited to have joined the Atlas One safety network,” said Fort Myers Police Lieutenant William Musante. “We now have the ability to send personalized geo-fenced notifications to an area as small as a building, allowing us to get the right information to the right people in real-time. This technology will save lives.”

 

“We are thrilled to have Fort Myers Police Department join the Atlas One network, and more importantly, improve transparency, communication, and information access with Fort Myers residents,” said Kushyar Kasraie, CEO of Atlas One. “This brings us one step closer to our goal of creating a nation-wide public safety network that will keep our users safe, regardless of where they are.” 

 

Atlas One was built to offer residents unprecedented access to real-time information, while still respecting user privacy. “Users can be comfortable sharing their location with Atlas One knowing their data is safe,” said Jamieson Johnson, Vice President of Atlas One. “Location access simply allows us to notify you if an emergency is occurring nearby. We never track historical locations or share your personal data with any third parties, including Fort Myers Police Department.” Users can still be notified if alerts occur nearby favorite places, even if they choose not to share their location.
