LAwS Communications is pleased to partner with VizSAFE, for #poltwt, the Global Police Tweet-a-thon. Vizsafe is a free social media safety crowdsourcing platform. Law Enforcement can map and share #poltwts to VizSAFE in real time by including a photo with “location on”. The VizSAFE App is available for free in the App Store and on GooglePlay, and can also be accessed from any other mobile device, tablet, PC or Mac using a web browser at www.vizsafe.com
VizSAFE is a social media platform that empowers ordinary citizens to play an active role in the well being of their communities by posting and sharing photos or videos from their smartphones. Today, with close to 2 billion smartphones in use worldwide, people are capturing compelling and valuable content in their communities. VizSAFE aggregates, maps and shares this content instantly with members of your community and first responders. VizSAFE is free to everyone, including citizens, municipalities and community service organizations.
For police agencies, VizSAFE eliminates the need for high cost silo-ed, community specific Apps each with a confusing array of interfaces and functionality. With VizSAFE, organizations can simply leverage their existing social presence on Facebook and Twitter to drive citizen participation and at no cost to the organization or the public. Please visit www.vizsafe.com for more information.
VizSAFE members are good neighbors who care about the safety and well being of their family, friends and communities. At VizSAFE, we view safety broadly to include issues that people encounter everyday, such as a downed tree on a powerline, a flooded road or a stray animal. For more serious issues, VizSAFE is a valuable tool to enable the public to share real-time visual information with first responders.
Because VizSAFE is dynamic and two-way, law enforcement and public safety organizations can send notifications to the public to seek their assistance or to provide important safety information. These notifications can include photos or videos and are geolocated so alerts can be targeted to VizSAFE users in a specific area. VizSAFE has partnered with a growing number of organizations that have an interest in or responsibility for public safety. Citizen engagement adds tremendous value to public safety.
