CopCritic is an innovative new live streaming website and app, launched by Victor Holman, that is designed to empower regular citizens to hold police accountable in order to about ensuring that interactions between law enforcement officials and regular citizens take place in a legal, professional and productive manner at all times.

The app allows users to live stream their interactions with police, while also notifying their chosen contacts about the police encounter and letting them view the live stream. The stream is then stored in the CopCritic database so that in case something untoward happens, the public can view the stream and hold police accountable.

The CopCritic app and website makes for a great example of mobile technology being used to address a social problem in a proactive and productive manner.
