Police-Policing Apps

The Mobile Justice App Helps Civilians Hold Police Accountable

— July 21, 2016 — Tech
Mobile Justice is an innovative smartphone app, developed and promoted by the American Civil Liberties Union, that is designed to make it easier than ever for civilians to record their interactions with police in order to keep them accountable.

The app, available to download from different platforms, allows you to not just record police interactions but also enter in pertinent details such as your location and the names of civilians and police personnel involved, before sending the information directly to the American Civil Liberties Union. Users can also enter in details about the police officers' behavior and response.

The Mobile Justice app is a well-timed innovation given tensions between police and some communities in the USA in recent times, and ultimately aims to foster understanding in order to promote a mutual understanding between police and civilians.




Trend Themes
1. Mobile Justice - The development of Mobile Justice app aims to foster accountability and transparency in police-civilian interactions, which could disrupt the traditional way of policing.
2. Crowdsourced Policing - Policing apps like Mobile Justice could encourage more civilians to participate in policing by allowing them to report issues and record interactions with law enforcement, leading to a shift in the role of civilians in law enforcement.
3. Accountability Tech - The rise of policing apps and other accountability tech could disrupt the traditional power dynamics between police and civilians, leading to increased transparency and trust.
Industry Implications
1. Law Enforcement - The development of policing apps like Mobile Justice could lead to transparency and accountability in law enforcement, leading to potential disruptive innovation in the industry.
2. Technology - The rise of accountability tech and policing apps like Mobile Justice could create opportunities for tech companies looking to develop solutions for accountability and transparency in various industries.
3. Civil Rights - The development of Mobile Justice app and other civil rights innovations could disrupt traditional power dynamics and create opportunities for advocacy and education in the civil rights industry.
