An app has been introduced to be used for crime reporting

Kenyan residents more so women who are in distressed situations will now reach the police easily by contacting the sub county police Commender through using a new police mobile application app that's currently under development to help such people.

Dominick Kisavu, the Commissioner of police in the country revealed that this app will be connected to all the sub county Commanders after it's launch which is scheduled to be done recently.

All the affected Kenyans who will have downloaded the app will just send the alert messages to Police Commander or nearest police station by shaking their mobile phones and this will make the police reach them immediately

Kisavu added that this app will also help in tracking problems related to Gender Based Violence as well as Sexual related issues in real life time to help solve the state.

On their side, the office of the Inspector General of Police headed by Hillary Mutyambai will also ensure that the Sub County commanders respond immediately to calls of distress and offer the required help.

“The officer in charge will in turn deploy officers to track the device and assist the person in distress. Officers who fail to respond will be alerted by the national command center where the app shall also be monitored.The Inspector General of Police will monitor the app from a dashboard in the office to ensure that all cases reported are attended to,” Kisavi noted.

This application will also enable distressed people to record the injuries and forward for the investigation.

The project is supported by the National Police Service in partnership with United Nations Women and Crown Trust.
