Crime information is fragmented, or even not available at all. As a result, there's no easy way for people to understand how safe they are in any given area or moment.

Based on survey responses for the years 2006 to 2010, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) report estimates that 52% of all violent crimes, or an annual average of 3.38 million incidents, go unreported every year in the US, including 211,000 sexual assaults and 507,000 aggravated assaults. Additionally, United Nations reports shows that over 70% of crimes are not reported to authorities in Latin America, for different reasons: such as bureaucracy or fear.

At the end, criminals have always taken advantage of these lack of information, they operate always with the same modus operandi, in the same areas, at the same hours, against the same unaware people.



CityCop democratizes crime data and makes it publicly available, allowing anyone to report crimes in real-time and creating a location-based feed of public safety information that keeps people aware and safe.

CityCop aggregates real-time crowdsourced crime data with official crime reports, combining both in a comprehensive syndicated crime database to easily determine how safe a given area is.
