Self Evident

Self Evident


Self Evident is a free app that records, validates and secures evidence. While the Android version has been designed primarily as a crime reporting app, it also lets you file a report for work, notify an adviser or business of a claim, send the media a news story or just secure the evidence in your private account.

More reliable evidence
Evidence recorded using the app is more reliable because (a) it is recorded in real time and when the events are fresh in your mind, (b) a data log validating the time, place and file information is stored and corroborated independently, and (c) a copy is kept safe in your private account. You can also import any relevant evidence into the Self Evident app that was recorded outside the app, and secure or send it in a report (though the data validation service is not available for this evidence).

Safer communities
The app was first developed as a means to deter and reduce crime. As well as validating evidence, Self Evident guides users through making a witness statement, and locates and dates the incident in a secure and convenient report. By easing the path of victims and witnesses, the app offers a new approach to community safety and police-public engagement.

Simplifying life
The app also helps whenever evidence matters. You can use it to notify an insurer about a treasured purchase, to photograph the scene of a car accident, to record the damage a leaking roof is causing or the effects of an injury or the progress of recovery, to collect evidence about a dispute, to record a neighborhood noise that disrupts your sleep, or to detail the condition of an apartment as you move in. By independently validating and securing evidence, the app avoids misunderstandings, dissolves disputes and, where necessary, can help prove a claim.

Streamlining work
By simplifying routine tasks, validating evidence and securing reports, the app can also save time and money at work. Auditors, campaigners, compliance officers, delivery drivers, inspectors, journalists, lawyers, loss adjusters, meter readers, police officers, regulators safety officials and writ servers are some of the people who can benefit by using Self Evident in their work.

Secure in Your Account
Reports generated through the Self Evident app are secured to the private account you get at JustEvidence.org when you register the app. This is where you manage your files, keep and validate evidence and track when a report you send is accessed. And if it’s a report to the police, this is where you can give confidential feedback on their response.

Free App, Free Trial, Free Reports
Self Evident is free to download. Reports to the police in the UK are free. You can send and secure up to five reports for personal or business use for free during your first four weeks trial. To find out about other free reports and charges, click on the links.

Witness Confident and Just Evidence
Witness Confident is the registered charity and legal advice centre behind the app's role in cutting crime in England & Wales. Its sister organisation Just Evidence is the limited company that delivers the app in other fields around the world. Just Evidence is a social enterprise where over half of the profits from non-police reports and all of the profits from police reports generated from the use of the app go to support charitable works in the regions and fields where the app is used. Both organisations are based at 312 St Paul’s Road, London N1 2LQ, UK.

Doesn't work Went through the whole process of logging an incident, then right at the end a failure to report. Also could not select a location. Great idea but needs to be easy to use, and work.
