Lightcatch is a free app where everyone near an alert gets notified and their information together transforms police efficiency.

Lightcatch app sample showing original crime update and second community update for suspects location.  Also shows how both locations reach a new group of crowdsourced users nearby to help with community policing.

Everyone nearby can help provide new locations and new evidence.The police can get many confirmations, from hundreds of extra eyes.

Proven effective in hundreds of cases.  

So much so, that just the app alone has lowered crime in several locations, sometimes as fast as 90 days.

Anonymous and safe to use.

All content is triaged by a Canadian based team to ensure it is legally compliant and respectful.

Stop crime before it happens, better.

Several people anonymously and safely contributed to community policing in this suspicious activity report.

At this point you might be thinking "This sounds great, but there's gotta be a catch?"

The app was designed to be used less than 5 minutes per week on average.

This low amount of usage means there is no value in delivering ads or re-selling data.  
It is supported financially by home and business owners who use Crime Blocker to improve the results they get from Lightcatch.

When Creating An Alert - For Best Results

Speed is the most important factor when creating an alert.

Good colour video, clear images of the suspect, a clear respectful description of what is needed and what to look for, and clarity that the police have been contacted improve results even further.

The better the quality, the more likely the public will support it as you've now provided proof, and made it so someone only needs to spend a few seconds knowing how they can help.

Once that is done, the public has an amazing accuracy of confirming if what you alerted is a real threat or not.  

After an alert or updated is created, you can always go back and edit the alert to add in the best description possible.  

If you want to add more images or video add them as an update and they will automatically get added to the image gallery.Updates showing each time police have been contacted will improve results further.

If the activity is confirmed as suspicious by several witnesses, those updates should be forwarded to the police.  The faster the better.  

If a crime or potential crime is unfolding, do not hesitate to call 911.  

If anyone tries to confuse the system with misinformation, their inputs will quickly be deleted and their usage blocked by the Operations team 24/7.
