The public have long served as the “eyes and ears” of their environment. They have a vested interest in their safety and are critical to support administrators’ duty to prevent and investigate crime, violence and malicious behavior including harassment and discriminatory practices. While most people would be willing to report suspicious and malicious behavior, many are hesitant to come forward as they “don’t want to get involved”. The reasons they list for not coming forward include:
The activeARG platform makes it easy to report incidents anonymously using their smartphones, providing information including pictures. A web app is delivered via text, does not require a download, and is compatible with all mobile devices. Anonymity is assured as administrators do not have access to the reporting person’s phone number. People provide their phone number on a voluntary basis.
With smartphone in hand, the public has become a powerful safety network. While a single report may not have enough legitimacy or reliability, the fact that multiple reports have been submitted relating to the same issue gives the threat greater credibility. Understanding that false alerts happen on a regular basis, crowdsourced reporting enables real-world verification avoiding the consequences of misinformation.
