Fighting crime is invariably the coolest thing, right? But it’s not just the movie stars who get to catch the bad guys these days. Even you can fight crime with the help of an app.
Yes, there’s a new app out there, called the Toronto Crime Stoppers, which enables smartphone owners to give anonymous tips to the Toronto Police. Available for iOS, Android and BlackBerry, the new crime fighting app is one of its kind in the North America.
The app allows you to record up to 60 seconds of video or photograph for easy tip submission. You can check the status of submitted tips, find the nearest police station using GPS and receive turn by turn directions. You can also view Toronto’s “Most Wanted” list and Toronto’s “Crime of the Week”.
Other features include one-touch calling directly to a Crime Stoppers representative and one touch email composition to submit an email tip. You can also connect with Toronto Crime Stoppers social media pages.
You shouldn’t be bothered about your safety after submitting a tip, it is 100% anonymous and your identity is protected by the Supreme Court of Canada. What more, you stand a chance to win a reward of $2,000 for helping the police fight crime.
Download the app from Google Play, iTunes or BlackBerry App World.
