What Is Lightcatch?

Lightcatch is a crime prevention and reporting system that uses a free app for everyone. Whenever someone witnesses a crime or suspicious activity they can upload all the information to our website or the app.  The service then notifies everyone with a smartphone nearby of what happened, including video and photos..  

People can then help crowdsource a suspect’s location and any other helpful information for the police to work with. It puts power and safety into the hands of the people.

How To Report a Crime

Why It Works

Like cockroaches when the lights are turned on, criminals run for it when they know their crimes might be posted online or the police might arrive any moment. Now everyone with a mobile phone can help show law enforcement a suspect’s exact location, so they can act with precision and speed.

  In 2018, the community of Grande Prairie, Canada came together in a pilot test of the Lightcatch service. Thousands got involved. Together they helped recover over $1.2 million of stolen goods, including 33 stolen vehicles, and priceless items like a father’s ashes.


  When we’re all working together, entire communities sleep safer at night.
