Londoners will now be able to report crimes at the touch of a button, as a new crime-fighting smartphone app is launched by an independent charity.
Self Evident is a free app, available for Apple’s IOS and Google’s Android operating systems, allows users to report the details of a crime direct to police.
Where they’ll do…what?
Guy Dehn, Witness Confident director, said: “Self Evident makes it easy for the public to report crime, make statements and file evidence with the police simply and securely. Mobile technology is an incredibly powerful tool and this app will put that power in the public’s hands so they can help cut crime in their area.”
Will it ‘cut crime’?
Half a million calls to the police on the non-emergency 101 service went unanswered last year, Witness Confident said.
