The Bank Robbers app is available for free download from Apple’s App Store or Google Play, FBI said Friday.

FBI added the app sorts robberies according to date, category, place of occurrence and the FBI field office in charge of the case and provides surveillance photos, robbery details as well as physical descriptions and wanted posters for each suspect.

The app also features a notification system that alerts users on nearby bank robberies and a direct link to the FBI online tips page so that users with information on robberies or suspects can contact the bureau.

The Bank Robbers app follows the 2012 launch of FBI’s Bank Robbers website that features a gallery of unknown bank robbery suspects.
