CityCop is a social platform for community watch that enables you to fight crime and protect yourself and your loved ones, where you can actively report crimes in your community and receive real-time information of what is happening in the areas you care about.
The project brought us as the challenge of handling information in a massive way and at the same time allow the platform to keep scaling. We also remember how it was to build a predictive model to know where the next crime will occur.
CityCop democratizes crime data and makes it publicly available, allowing anyone to report crimes in real-time and creating a location-based feed of public safety information that keeps people aware and safe.
To achieve this, CityCop aggregates real-time crowdsourced crime data with official crime reports and any other crime data sources available, combining all in a comprehensive syndicated crime database to easily determine how safe a given area is.
