The launch was only made possible with the support of Noosphere and Max Polyakov. Work on the startup started in early 2016. To make the app even more effective, the Noosphere team began working closely with Vladimir Bohonys, head of the Dnipro police patrol.
The service provides a direct connection with the police 24/7 and is aimed at helping people feel safe.
One of the core features of the app is the SOS button that allows a use to call the police with just one click. Pressing a SOS button and holding it for a few seconds automatically sends the user’s identity and location to the police station.
By using the My Police app, anyone can help police investigate crimes. The “Active witness” feature allows citizens to document a crime through photos and videos and immediately pass the information on to the police.
With help of the app user can also contact an officer, rate a police officers professionalism, see a map of police stations and emergency departments, and follow the latest police news.
The application is still only tied to police in the city of Dnipro, however, developers plan to roll it out in Lviv, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhya and Odessa. My Police is currently available only to Android users. The iOS version will be launched in the near future.
