What Is Lightcatch?

Lightcatch is a crime reporting tool. Whenever someone witnesses a crime, or catches illegal activity on video, they can upload all the information to the app, which notifies everyone nearby of what happened, and also sends the information to the police, helping them resolve the case faster and more efficiently than ever before.


It gives everyone with a smartphone the ability to help crowdsource a suspect’s location when a crime occurs nearby. It puts power and safety into the hands of the people. Join with your neighbors and make a difference today. (Currently restricted to the Grande Prairie area of Alberta - Mar 2019)

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.
