Peoria, AZ Launches ‘Civic Reporter’ App
The city of Peoria launched a new Smartphone application which allows citizens to identify and report non-emergency civic issues, such as public works, quality of life, and environmental issues. This mobile reporting platform will improve how Peoria delivers services to its neighborhoods.
PeoriaAz Civic Reporter allows a user to capture a photo, video, or audio of the problem. The user then uploads the media and, along with GPS location information pulled directly from the device, submits a report directly to the city’s appropriate department. Once a report is submitted, feedback is provided to the user based on the action taken by the department handling the report.
Using PeoriaAz Civic Reporter allows the city to use technology to save time and money, while improving accountability to Peoria citizens. In addition, the application verifies that the item being reported is within the city boundaries. If there is a pothole, for instance, outside the city boundaries, the GPS tracking service from the device the sender is using will identify the location of the issue being reported and notify the sender.
The application is an efficient way to report nuisances, dangerous roads, and broken traffic lights, as well as many other items the city can address. The app does tell you that if you have a real emergency, you should call 911 and will prompt you to do so with a button.
Peoria residents can download the PeoriaAz Civic Reporter application to a phone, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone, by using app store on their device. For residents who don’t use or have a SmartPhone, reporting of city streets or environment issues may still be submitted online at either www.peoriaaz.gov or by calling 623-773-5150.
