After a lot of strategic thinking, research and user-centered analysis, we've come up with a very simplified (intentionally!) user workflow that fulfills needs and goals for our personas.
Report an incident
Take a photo or video, or just attach it. Fill in with a bit of information for the police officials and viola! Help is coming your way. No need to state where you are — you've sent your location automatically.
Stay in the loop
Familliar UX messaging pattern keeps user in touch with the police officials, making the contact more friendly and engaging.
In an emergency?
Just tap and slide! Based on your current location, nearest police officials will be notified and dispatched immediately — with precise mapping feedback and ETA.
