Paul Cooper is hoping the power of Teesside can further propel his mobile app into the world of digital.

Paul is asking for the help of Teesside to vote for his crime-fighting app, Pocket Sergeant at the Digital Champion Awards that are being held in London on 9th February 2017. However the closing date is 5pm on 20th January 2017.

Paul, who grew up in Stockton-On-Tees was a police officer for Cleveland Police for six years. During his time in Cleveland, he designed a mobile app that would revolutionise frontline policing.

He approached Middlesbrough-based, Sockmonkey Studios and funded the app using his family savings.

In 2014, he transferred to Lincolnshire Police. In October 2016, Paul left his role as a police officer to concentrate on his mobile app and other digital projects.

Pocket Sergeant won gold in the Mobile App category at Cambridgeshire Digital Awards 2016 and now the app is up against gold winners from four other regions. Now, it is down to the public vote!!

Paul said, “I designed came up with the concept whilst living in Teesside and working for Cleveland Police. A victory for Pocket Sergeant at the Digital Champions Awards would also be a victory for Teesside, Sockmonkey Studios and of course for policing.”

“I designed the app to help others. The app not only assists police officers and staff carry out their daily duties. I have been received emails and phone calls from victims of crime, barristers, cadets, solicitors and those who act as appropriate adults – all of which find the app of use to them.”

Paul jokes, “Friends of mine in Teesside have made me promise that if I win, the Parmos are on me when I next visit!”
Priced as £4.99, Pocket Sergeant is currently available on the Apple and Google Play Stores. Find out more information about the app by visiting the website directly at www.pocketsergeant.co.uk.
