CrimePush Launches Location-Aware Crime Reporting App

February 02, 2012  | 

CrimePush.com has announced the launch of its iPhone and Android app that allows citizens to immediately report a crime to their local authorities and provide detailed location data, photos, video, audio, and text description of the crime to first responders.

"There are often tense situations when calling the police is not an option," explained co-founder Eman Pahlevani. "There are other times when inconvenience or fear of reprisal prevents one from reporting an incident. CrimePush allows the more than 100 million smartphone users the opportunity to become the eyes and ears of authorities."

CrimePush.com plans to work at the enterprise level and partner with high schools, law enforcement agencies, universities, and international mobile carriers. On the eve of its launch, the company has developed relationships with the Metropolitan (D.C.) Police Department, Virginia's Fairfax and Loudoun counties, Virginia school boards, and several D.C. universities.

The first customized safety application to hit the stores will be released for George Mason University, followed by a spring release version for high schools in the nation's fastest growing county, Loudoun.

In addition to reporting crimes to law enforcement, CrimePush.com can also alert family and friends of stalking, harassment, or other threats by reporting an exact location when a threat arises.

The app can record and alert for domestic violence, physical violence, verbal threats, or intimidation. It can serve as a personal security device when traveling through dark or unfamiliar neighborhoods.

The app can alert medical responders to emergences like heart attack, stroke, or accidents when no one is around. It can also alert school authorities of bullying, physical altercations, or vandalism. 

"One of the great features of CrimePush is its ability to report a crime anonymously," said Shayan Pahlevani, co-founder. "This is especially important for high school and college students, who often find themselves the victim of hazing, bullying, or drug use but are not willing to inform the police because of reputation issues."
