The World’s First Domestic Violence Application

 

A smartphone app that creates a mobile geo-zone around an offender’s tracking device and communicates with the survivor’s smart phone, providing an early-warning notification to the survivor or family members if they are in proximity of the offender.

  • Panic Button sends an alarm to the monitoring center
    and system, which initiates an outbound call

  • Dispatch Button initiates an outbound call to the monitoring center

  • Data Communication: survivor location, alarm and phone information is transmitted to the monitoring center

  • Tracking/Reporting Intervals approximately once per minute

Features:

SafeTracks has harnessed the power of the smartphone by developing an application specifically designed for survivors of domestic violence that eliminates the need for additional GPS/communication devices and is more effective as a deterrent to unwanted encounters between offenders and survivors.

 

  • Besides the GPS device worn by the offender, the survivor is only required to carry a smartphone that tracks her location using the most advanced GPS technology available and also enables direct communication with the monitoring center and law enforcement.

  • Once the DV application is downloaded, it automatically pairs the smartphone with the offender’s device creating a “virtual zone” that travels with the survivor as she moves, such that an alert will sound if the offender comes within a set distance of the survivor’s device.

  • Alerts can be sent even before the offender breaches a static or mobile exclusion zone. For example, if a static exclusion zone surrounds the survivor’s home by 200 yards at any angle, a preliminary warning alert could sound if the offender came within 500 yards of that 200 yard barrier.

  • Similarly, a preliminary alert could be sent as the offender approached the survivor’s mobile exclusion zone, with a more urgent alert sent once the offender breached the specific radius surrounding the victim.
