The CITZs application is here to turn security into cities. With features that allow people to send real-time alerts about risky episodes wherever they are, the app has the flagship collaborative behavior of citizens.
Assaults, robberies, animals or people lost, car accidents and violence against women are some of the cases that can be notified and even prevented from happening, depending on how quickly alerts appear on users’ devices.
Designed as a tool for collaborative behavior, just as Waze is for traffic, for example, the People’s Police aims to bring more security to people by mapping the risk cases that happen at all times in cities. More than merely informative, the application has as main characteristic the call to action, inviting people to engage in sharing occurrences, informing and being informed in real time. In this way, there is the possibility of identifying the necessary precautions according to what happened in the region where you are.
“The Popular Police will bring greater security to the cities, and the best thing is that it does not depend on public agencies. The population itself, collaborating with information and alerts, will make the difference in the day to day of millions, “says Alessandro Bertolotto, commercial director of the application.
How to use
When downloading the application, the user can connect with both his Facebook account and register automatically, as well as use some other email. From there it has access to a map that shows, through icons, the received alerts, which can be carried out anonymously.The user can also search a specific location to find out if there are alerts in that region, monitoring addresses of friends and family, for example.
Another feature of the app is quick access to key emergency numbers such as the fire department and military police. In addition, the app shows which hospitals and police stations are closest to your location and, through Waze, directs people to those locations.
The Popular Police alert button can be activated quickly and at any time. When triggered, occurrences appear on the application map, indicating their exact location and notifying people in real-time of the occurrence. The following is the list of available alerts:
§ Vehicle Theft
§ Missing Person
§ Lost Animal
§ Drunk Driver
