Here’s what Sean “Sticks” Larkin, retired Tulsa police officer and host of Coptales and Cocktails, has to say about Crime and Place: “Crime and Place is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Wherever you live or travel, it’s got your back. It’s what you need to know. And it’s so easy to use! Here are the features that make Crime and Place so invaluable. Start with the unique Crime Compass™. As you walk or drive, you can scope out your surroundings with a color-coded view that updates itself constantly. Like a radar sweep, it displays crime safety information in all directions for up to one mile. Next is the Crime Map Overlay. Want to check out a potential hot spot at a gas station, restaurant or rest stop before you arrive? Easy! Plus, you can drop a pin on the map to verify that your next stop won’t be in an unexpected high crime area. Or, let Crime and Place route you to your destination showing crime safety levels of each possible route so you can choose. But Crime and Place isn’t simply a ‘one-size-fits-all’ concept. It’s customizable! You can easily change settings to display different types of crime by categories and weighting. For example, want to know about ‘auto theft’? Just tap and look. With background GPS, you can also see notifications alerting you when you enter a high crime area. You can rely on what you see on Crime and Place because it shows national and local crime rates based on FBI data, trend and population analyses. This is meaningful information that’s presented in an easy-to-read way. People tell me about all kinds of ways to use Crime and Place, like: • monitoring your own neighborhood and surrounding areas • going on a road trip out of town or out of state • choosing hotels, gas and rest stops • checking out the safety of your daily commute • monitoring the areas around your work, shopping and parking spots • learning about parks, events and attractions before you go • researching new neighborhoods when considering a move or vacation rental • advising family and friends Bottom line, I advise everyone to take the initiative when it comes to the safety of themselves and their family. Downloading Crime and Place is your first step!” National Press Coverage “Navigating the app feels like running through a video game. A warning pops up when you’re entering a ‘high crime area,’ then directs you back to safe environs.” The Wall Street Journal “The app uses maps and a ‘Crime Compass’ that tells users not only how safe they are, but essentially how to escape high-crime areas.” Herald Sun, Melbourne Learn more at Notifications require background GPS use. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. IMPORTANT NOTE: This app is not designed to, nor does it provide any guarantee of safety.

Need an update

It’s not working with the latest OS. Keeps on crashing on the 14pro.
By some name will do

Broken App

7/11/2022 Just installed the latest update, now the app crashes as soon as it tries to open. Nice work folks. 🙄

Data is SIX YEARS OLD for Non-subscribers

What a joke. “Sticks” Larkin, you should be ashamed for recommending such a piece of crap app! What a waste of time. Very disappointed!

No matter what password you put in fails.

Nice layout. Old data

The app itself is great. If it had current rates it’d be better.

This used to be such a great resource for the $

I’m really disappointed that this no longer costs $4.99yr. I used to suggest it to others but not anymore.

Great app for travelers!

I have enjoyed having this app on my phone while traveling alone and while traveling with my husband. Seeing the crime stats of places we have visited before as well as new communities has been enlightening. Knowing that my grandson lives in one of the safest cities is comforting as well. Thank you Crime and Place!

Greedy Developer

After subscribing to the app for several years at a reasonable price, they are now extorting subscribers for $50/ year. Good app for $15, not for $50. Save your money!
By Scott Was Here

Too much now

I wouldn’t have minded a little increase but to go from $5/yr to $50/yr is insane. Stop getting mad at your customers for leaving this on the reviews. This is your new business model and we’re not happy. Waiting for competition to arrive with better pricing.
