SafetyCheck Louisville

Metro Mapper LLC
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

SafetyCheck is a Louisville mobile app that gives you an official CrimeScore based the number, recency, and severity of crimes around your current location.

More info about the app at:
http://yourmapper.com/safetycheck

Use our national CrimeScore API at
http://yourmapper.com/crimescore

The app shows a CrimeScore from 1 to 10 of your current safety level, and the number of historic crimes in your area.

NOTE: This location-based app will ONLY work in LOUISVILLE, KY, USA. More cities coming soon. Or see our CrimeScore API and build your own app in one of 15 US cities!

We are working on getting the latest crime data loaded. For right now it uses years of historic data.

SafetyCheck is useful for city visitors, social workers, new police officers, city workers, and any residents moving around the city.

SafetyCheck can then drill down to see a list of area crimes, and map them, and get details about each individual crime. And you can see nearby places of interest.

If needed, you can call your local Police Division number to report a problem.

Your location is automatically updated as you move around. It's reverse geocoded to find the nearest address on the fly.

You can go to settings and adjust the frequency that the app checks, to save battery life.

A great feature is push notifications. You can set your score threshold so that SafetyCheck can alert you when you enter an high crime area, even if the app is not open.

Currently the score comes from a proprietary formula based on a combination of location, type of crime, and date, and standardized across the entire city. You can use this CrimeScore in your apps with our API.

We think SafetyCheck can give visitors and residents peace-of-mind and access to detailed crime reports to help inform their decisions, help local police, and know their neighborhoods better.

The app was created using the Your Mapper (www.yourmapper.com) API in conjunction with app developer Eric Roland. Get the CrimeScore for any location on your site using our API, badges, and widgets.

NOTE: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Our location tracking alert feature uses geo-fencing, which has minimal impact on battery life.
Our verdict: Good
  • + SafetyCheck Louisville is a highly rated app (4-star).
  • + The app is currently free, instead of its regular price of $1.99.
