SafetyCheck is useful for city visitors, social workers, new police officers, city workers, and any residents moving around the city.
SafetyCheck can drill down to see a list of area crimes, map them, and get details about each individual crime. And you can see nearby places of interest.
Work with your local police. If needed, you can call your local Police Division number to report a problem.
Your location is automatically updated as you move around. It's reverse geocoded to find the nearest address on the fly.
Push notifications allow you to set your score threshold so that SafetyCheck can alert you when you enter an high crime area, even if the app is not open.
The score comes from a proprietary formula
based on a combination of location, type of crime, and date, and standardized across the entire city.
SafetyCheck can give visitors and residents peace-of-mind and access to detailed crime reports to help inform their decisions, help local police, and know their neighborhoods better.
