Witness a Crime? There's an App for That

Monday, August 13, 2012

A former New York police captain who's now a state Senator is promoting a new app that will allow New Yorkers to report suspected crimes.

Senator Eric Adams's "Brooklyn Quality of Life" application allows users to email photos or recorded messages with their iPhones and Android smartphones.

The anonymous emails go to a group of retired detectives who decide whether the content should be posted on a Facebook page accessible only to members of city agencies.

Adams, a Democrat from Brooklyn, says the free app gives people who are reluctant to go directly to the police a chance to help fight crime.
