Proven Technology to Reduce Crime Comes to San Francisco
LAS VEGAS, Nev. and PALO ALTO, Calif., June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — AlertID(TM) today announced that its free online and mobile app is now protecting San Francisco. AlertID is the safe way to receive trusted public safety alerts and share information with neighbors. Using information from trusted law enforcement officials and the community, AlertID provides up-to-the-minute information on crime, sex offenders, severe weather, natural disasters and more.
AlertID is supported by its partner, the National Crime Prevention Council (home of McGruff the Crime Dog®) and has been proven to reduce crime as much as 30 percent in some areas.
In 2012, just across the bay, Alameda County became the first California partner of AlertID in providing the information to residents to help them live more safely. At the time, Alameda Sheriff Gregory Ahern said, “(AlertID) is a powerful tool to help residents become more aware of crime and other threats to our community, and to be more proactive in helping ensure the safety of children and families throughout the county.”
“Our team is excited to bring the same service so many of their Bay Area neighbors have been using to San Francisco. AlertID pairs the most up to date information on crime, sex offenders, severe weather and emergency alerts with trusted resources to help protect families,” Keli Wilson, founder of AlertID, said.
AlertID works by connecting users to public safety authorities and other public safety information through alerts on their smartphones, tablets and computers. Alerts are provided by trusted sources including public safety agencies, local law enforcement, schools, neighborhood groups, neighbors, family members and friends. This connection between law enforcement and surrounding communities has been proven to reduce crime, and now San Francisco can be a part of it.
