Alertizen enables citizens to participate in their community’s safety by notifying them of a possible crime occurring in their neighborhood in near real time.
In partnership with local government and law enforcement Alertizen modernizes and revitalizes a city's block watch / neighborhood watch program so that every citizen can participate, be engaged, get out of harm's way and become the eyes and ears of the police in real time.
Alertizen’s Mission is to keep people safe and out of harm’s way and to create Engaged and Vigilant Neighborhoods to assist the Police Department.
Informed citizens make for safer neighborhoods: Before Alertizen, neighbors found out about the break-ins, burglaries and other crimes happening in their neighborhood weeks after the incident at the monthly Block watch meeting. With Alertizen, members are notified of a possible crime occurring within minutes of the 9-1-1 call.
Partnership with your police department: Modern police departments want their citizens actively involved through community engagement. Budget constraints have limited police resources so more and more people are urged to be aware of what's happening around them and report criminal activity to police.
Technology makes it simple: Everyone is busier than ever, and the traditional front porch neighborhood watch is difficult. But almost everyone has a cell phone and Alertizen is the perfect answer to keeping you informed on what is happening in your neighborhood.
Empower an entire neighborhood: Alertizen puts criminals on notice that the entire neighborhood is aware of their presence. Criminals may be dumb, but they know better than to "work" in an area where every citizen is an Alertizen.

Ratings and Reviews
I downloaded this app cause I stopped getting my normal alerts through my email and I seen the ratings were low but I still wanted to give the app a try cause the area I live in it pays highly to know what’s going on... well the second I opened it the app was lagging and freezing up but I figured i would give it some time , well here I am a few weeks later and I am really unhappy with the service and the freezing and lagging... I use to get alerts very often in email but looks like the app only updates one or three alerts a day .... and the original alert zone I had set up was a bigger range then the app allows. I’m very disappointed and am gonna be searching for a new source to monitor my crap neighborhood , if new updates and bugs are fixed and a better rating comes along I may reconsider. TAKE YOUR TIME to cover all the fine lines when making an app.
Use to love this app
I use to love this app. Today I clicked on the alerts and every time I click on one I get a stupid add. I get it, people have to make money but maybe just give a heads up to subscribers. Or maybe give them an option to opt out. No one likes a surprise when it comes to safety. It’s already bad enough that you stopped emails and text alerts years ago. Now you’re just like everyone else. Poor decision making based on money and not safety or loyalty. You made it work before so why not now? Probably sold the company and it’s no longer what it use to be. Typical!! But you still could have given a heads up to the current subscribers in the name of good business. Especially in these times. Do Better in the future please. This is about safety, security and protection. Again, do better. Don’t sell out next time. Sincerely the common folk
This app is an absolutely waste of time and space on your phone. DONT download it. The notification don’t work. 95% of the time that there is stuff going on it doesn’t get reported on the app I always have to find it on the news or a completely different app. All that shows up is “burglar alarms” and “suspicious person”. For a few days it tried saying there was a suspicious person standing right outside my apartment. When I had left for the store, which was the same time as getting this “alert” I went out side and found no one there but instead all my neighbors were gone. This app is a waste.
