The Cop Slang mobile app allows you to add and rate terms. Screenshot via has launched a mobile app of its popular Cop Slang glossary of law enforcement terms to allow officers to access it from their smartphones and submit terms on the fly.

With the Cop Slang mobile app, officers can add a new term or definition from their phone and rate existing terms from a list of more than 2,600 definitions of nearly 1,000 terms of police lingo.

As with the desktop version, users rate definitions with a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" with a quick touch from their Apple device's screen.

It's being offered it all for only 99 cents—the price of a single song in the iTunes store. The app was developed by POLICE Magazine's web department.

"In developing and launching the Cop Slang iPhone app, we hope to increase law enforcement engagement with POLICE Magazine in a fun and interactive way," said David Broyles, web producer.
