APPLICATION FOR REPORTING A PUBLIC SAFETY INCIDENT TO A DESIGNATED GOVERNMENT PUBLIC SAFETY AGENCY (PATENT PENDING)
The app is a user friendly tool to help crime prevention and improved information sharing with law enforcement and, more particularly, for communicating information associated with an incident to a designated government public safety agency.
Information sharing between law enforcement and other government public safety agencies is an important part of crime prevention and reduction efforts. Many citizens report incidents or suspected criminal activity to local, state, or federal law enforcement via phone hotlines or online via browser based web pages associated with respective agencies. These information submission vehicles, however, have limitations on the amount, type, and timeliness of the information submitted.
This application provides a user friendly way of incident information submission to law enforcement taking advantage of the widespread and ever-growing use of smartphones and other intelligent devices by the general public.
NOTICE: At this time this application works only with the Puerto Rico Police Department to report incidents within the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
