SafetyCheckSM is a mobile iPhone app
that gives you a CrimeScoreSM rating
at your current location.


The app shows a rating from 1 to 10 of your current safety level, and the number of recent crimes in your area.


NOTE: This location-based app will ONLY work in LOUISVILLE, KY, USA.
More cities coming soon after launch.

Usage
SafetyCheck is useful for city visitors, social workers, new police officers, city workers, and any residents moving around the city.

Crime List
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.

Call Police
Work with your local police. If needed, you can call your local Police Division number to report a problem.

Location Detection
Your location is automatically updated as you move around. It's reverse geocoded to find the nearest address on the fly.


Push Alerts
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.

CrimeScore
The score comes from a proprietary formula based on a combination of location, type of crime, and date, and standardized across the entire city.

Summary
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.

CrimeScore rating is a propriety methodology based on address-level crime reports,
weighted for type of crime, recency, and proximity, then adjusted by neighboring CrimeScore ratings,
and finally standardized in a bell curve based on all the CrimeScores across a city, updated daily.
