ST. MARYS, Ga. -- The St. Marys Police Department launched a new smartphone app Monday night.

Once downloaded the free app provides users the ability to register for text alerts, view a crime map, see a list of wanted people in the area and many other features.

The St. Marys Police Department expects an iPhone version to be available in the next two to four weeks.
