Keep Crime Away
Lightcatch is a revolutionary new app that protects communities and lets everyone with a smartphone help the police stop crime 10X faster than anything else on the market.
In 2018, a test run of the system in Grande Prairie, Alberta area met with huge success. Thousands got involved, and together they helped recover over $1.2 million of stolen goods - including 33 stolen vehicles, and priceless items like a father’s ashes.
What is Lightcatch?
Lightcatch is a crime reporting tool. Whenever someone witnesses a crime, or catches illegal activity on video, they can upload all the information to the app, which notifies everyone nearby of what happened, and also sends the information to the police, helping them resolve the case faster and more efficiently than ever before.
Why It works
When you download the app, it serves as a warning to criminals that they are being watched by everyone in your area. Like cockroaches when the lights are turned on, criminals run for it when they know their crimes might be posted online or the police might arrive any moment. With the app, everyone with a mobile phone can help show law enforcement a suspect’s exact location, so they can act with precision and speed.
What it means to you
The more friends, neighbors, and coworkers that have the app, the better your protection becomes. We've seen dramatic decreases in crime, because perpetrators don't want their actions posted online for everyone to see. Whether or not you ever report a crime in the app, it gives you added protection to your home, family, and business.
