ACLU of Mississippi Mobile Justice, modeled after the NYCLU “Stop and Frisk” app developed by Quadrant 2, is one way to hold Mississippi Law Enforcement Agencies accountable for their actions. If you see something, say something by using ACLU of Mississippi Mobile Justice to document the police interactions you see.
HOW TO USE THE APP:
Simply open the app and hit the record button at the top of the screen and the application will use your phone’s camera to record both audio and video. To stop recording, simply shake the phone or manually press the ‘click to stop’ button. This video is automatically sent to the ACLU of Mississippi as soon as you stop recording.
After each recording you will be prompted to fill out a short incident report. You can bypass the incident report by simply pressing cancel; however, we encourage you to fill it out so we can learn more about what you saw. Required fields in the incident report are marked ‘required.’ If you are unsure of the information asked in the incident report, simply mark ‘unsure’. Finally, press the ‘submit the incident report button’ to send your incident report to the ACLU of Mississippi.
This feature allows you to know if people around you are getting stopped by the police. When others in your area use Mobile Justice, you will get a message reporting where the police stop is happening. If the dot is green, it means the ‘witness’ feature is activated. If the dot is red it means the ‘witness’ feature is not activated and you will not receive reports on where police activity is happening. This feature is especially useful for community groups who monitor police activity. Be sure to go to “my settings” to turn on “broadcast my location” in order for the ‘witness’ function to operate.
This function allows you to access the incident report. You can use this function to report a police interaction you saw or experienced, even if you didn’t film it. Be sure to hit the ‘submit’ incident report button so that your responses are sent to the ACLU of Mississippi.

I saw a video referring this app and downloaded it but realized it's not for my state could you make one for my state? It seems like a great idea.
Great idea, but...
This app is a great idea! I would’ve given it 5 stars, but every time I get a notification that something is happening nearby, I open the app and it says no notifications. Every time. I’d like to be able to help others when they use the app. Or get help if I use the app.
I think this app is a great idea and will give us some kind of security against the good cop vs bad cop. Spreading the word.
