It's an app for Android and ios iPhone, that allows bystanders to
report disturbances that had not yet reached emergency stage.
A press of a button will send a gps alert that would alert any inactive
patrolling police on duty to investigate a potential event and
prevent it from
escalating to an emergency.
It will also urge the user to document the event using a camera, and
urge the user to voluntarily submit the video as potential evidence.
||Like this one. One place I lived had student
apartments across the street, and occasionally the
late parties devolved into shouting matches, and
more than once into fights. It's never clear at what
point to call the police, the fight obviously, but if
there were a non-emergency indicator prior to that,
it would be useful.
||Well I guess you can also optionally add a 5 star
severity levels for the gps alerts. Much like say the 5
star notoriety score in the video game GTA
