Citizen App is the first security app that can put the general public in touch with a safety security agent when in a stressful situation. Citizen App can alert people about local incidents to be aware of avoiding coming in contact.
Last May, the people who run the Citizen App were accused of promoting the use of vigilantism. The app posted a $30,000 reward to capture an arsonist. It turned out the man was falsely accused of a crime he did not commit.
After the charges were dropped against the man with the arson conviction, the crime app added a new feature called Protect. Protect monitors the location of the subscriber. Through video or text, the distressed subscriber is linked to a Citizen App employee. Protect has no intention of replacing 911 calls. Protect is trying to weed out the emergency calls from the non-emergency calls. An agent at Citizen can also alert the special contact person the subscriber names.
The crime app got its start in New York City in 2016 under the name Vigilante. Vigilante was provided by Apple until the company closed the app two days after it was launched. Aple was accused of promoting vigilantism. In 2017, Vigilante was relaunched as Citizen app. The employees of the crime app urge citizens not to take the law into their own hands, instead use the app when they feel their security is threatened.
The crime app saved many lives, including 34 people reporting a fire at the Trump Tower in 2019. There was a boy abducted in Manhattan. Both times, the crime app was used to report these situations. The crime app can be downloaded and used on your cell phone. The crime is used in 22 cities across the 48 continuous states from New York to Los Angeles.
