The West Virginia State Police has a smart phone application which can be found at the iStore for Apple products and at the Google Play Store for Android devices.  

It is a free app, designed to enhance communication between the West Virginia State Police and the public.  The app allows users to access the West Virginia State Police Facebook, Twitter, website, Sex Offender Registry, Detachment information, and numerous other features.

With the app, the West Virginia State Police also has the ability to send out blast messages related to Amber/Silver Alerts and major criminal incidents. 
 
"This smart phone app offers many features which I believe will come in handy to anyone living in or traveling throughout our state," said Colonel C.R. "Jay" Smithers. "All contact information for the West Virginia State Police is now readily available to those who download this free service.  Just remember, if you are taking advantage of this service while driving a vehicle, please either pull off the side of the road and utilize the app or have a passenger access it for you.  This is a new work, in progress and we encourage the public to offer up suggestions for improvement."
