Currently operating in New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area. Expanding soon.

Joining the Citizen safety network will give you instant access to information about crimes near you. The Citizen technology will send you real-time push notifications to alert you of crimes that are close. Users write to us every day telling us how Citizen is changing how they engage with their neighborhoods. Citizen notifications have prompted users to evacuate burning buildings, deter school buses from departing a school during a nearby terrorist attack, or even rescue their neighbor’s baby locked in a hot car.

You may receive a notification of a crime in progress before the police have responded. This app is meant to keep you safe and protect you. Please use Citizen responsibly.

Real-time Alerts: Location-based notifications help you avoid potentially dangerous situations.

Live Video: Go live from the scene or watch an incident unfold from different angles.

Incident Details: Receive continuous updates on incidents and chat with other Citizen users.
From version Citizen 0.917.3:
• Remind Your Contacts: We know it’s important to have your family and friends join your Inner Circle as soon as possible. If someone you care about still hasn’t replied to your request, you can now quickly send them a reminder from the Inner Circle tab.
• Notifications: We’ll also now occasionally send you a notification to let you know that you still have pending requests.
