AlertCops, the security in your pocket

Today we echo an application that the Ministry of the Interior launched in August 2014, but is still a great unknown for a large number of people. We're talking about AlertCops, the security in your pocket .

What is it about?

It is the citizen security alert service of the State Security Forces and Bodies. It is version 3.0 of making a call to the Police or Civil Guard , ie alerts through the application.

How does it work?

After downloading it, we must register with our personal data, also providing an email, a mobile phone number, and even a photograph, which we can take with our iPhone. It must be said that it is a very simple process to do and easy to complete .
Once the registration process is completed and access is validated with a code that is sent by SMS to the mobile phone number, the application displays a main screen with the following options, which can be selected by pressing the corresponding icon. There are for various types of crime, from theft, fights, vandalism, gender violence (sadly so common), sexual assault, bullying or missing persons .
This service allows you, from your iPhone, to send an alert directly to the police, in a simple and intuitive way and with the objective of being attended quickly and efficiently. If it is necessary to use it, you will be asked for additional information: where, to whom and when the events occurred. Finally, we always request confirmation of the sending of the alert , which is notified to the relevant bodies together with your location, which is also very accurate.

Why in the form of application?

Undoubtedly because we have to go with the times . With the application allows discreet notification, can also do hearing impaired people, to give an example, since the alerts can be given by chat.

The verdict

We can only say that the authorities have designed an efficient, modern and easy to use service. It is the typical application that has to have on the iPhone yes or yes , as unfortunately the incidents that require the use of it are the order of the day. And now with the summer departures, more so. Of course, we hope you never have to use it, and if so, it will be resolved with a happy ending. Technologies, always remember, also serve to do harm .
Have you ever used this app? How was the service managed? Tell it in comments.
