WSIS Prizes Contest 2019 Nominee

Crimebot


Description

Crimebot limited is a Jamaican startup focused on using technology to solve crime. It is a mobile application that allows users to anonymously report crimes and criminals. It pinpoints crime hotspots and uses push alerts to notify users of crimes near their current location. CrimeBot is a mobile app which alerts users by using crime reports, giving users a live view of what's happening around them by the minute. Crimebot uses notifications, crime hot-spot illustrations and even allows the submission of completely anonymous crime reports. With CrimeBot, we are trying to reduce crimes and criminal activities in the Caribbean and beyond by giving a voice to the voiceless.
