SafetiPin is a map-based mobile safety app which works to make our communities and cities safer by providing safety-related information collected by users and professionally trained auditors. This maps app will always remain free for the users.
SafetiPin builds on the premise that community participation and engagement will make our cities safer. Users can set up ” Circles of Interest “, which could be their own neighborhood, a place of work, or a place where a loved one stays. Any post through the mobile safety app in any of these circles, will show up on a Wall tagged for that circle.
A post can be a safety audit, a place, harassment or a hazard or even a Feeling. Users can agree to posts, put up their own comments, and even post it on Facebook. We hope that SafetiPin will be used for connecting individuals with the community via free crowd sourcing.
At the core of the app is the Safety Audit. It consists of a set of 9 parameters that together contribute to the perception of safety. Each audit results in a pin on the specific location where the audit was performed and also records the time and date.
