HISTORY

 
 

CRIMEWATCH in the beginning...

Started as a printed publication and distributed through retail outlets all across Pennsylvania. However, in late 2010 we recognized how technology; specifically social media and smart phones where changing the way our world communicates. We knew that this would impact communities and that if properly used it could bring in a new era of public safety.

We knew to make this happen, we would have to build the infrastructure and framework for law enforcement to make this transition easy. As it turns out, our mission of driving transparency,empowering communities and build positive community engagement was timely and relevant. 

Taking all of the benefits that social media provides, plus the best of mobile applications, tip submission services and crime mapping, data and analytics services; we have the built the most robust community engagement platform available for law enforcement. All while providing a new mechanism of transparency never before available in communities.

Our technology creates transparency, builds trust and is proven to prevent and reduce crime.
