ACLU of Nebraska Mobile Justice, modeled after the NYCLU “Stop and Frisk” app and developed by Quadrant 2, is one way to hold Nebraska Law Enforcement Agencies accountable for their actions. If you see something, say something by using ACLU of Nebraska 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 Nebraska 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 Nebraska.
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 Nebraska.
Keep up-to-date on local and statewide actions and events hosted by the ACLU.

I love the idea of this. However, I have the same problem as another review cribbed-I will get a notification for “Nearby event in progress, Click here to see location”. It then opens google maps but there is no information. The Alerts tab within the app also always says No Updates.
Disappointing, I hope an update will fix what could be a great app.
This is a wonderful app, but I keep getting notified that an incident is in progress nearby, then when the app opens it has an error message and takes me to Google Maps.
Excellent concept, one gripe
This is a much needed app, however, it would be nice if the app had an option to also store a local copy of the video. I don't think I'd want to film a video of anything important and not have access to it again without calling the ACLU.
