Crime and Place™ just might save your life – or help you avoid becoming the victim of a violent crime. Just look at these features: - The Crime Compass™ - Quickly see your surroundings as you move using a unique color-coded view that updates dynamically. Whether you’re walking or driving, the Crime Compass shows you short- and long-range crime hotspots, allowing you to steer clear of dangerous areas! The radar sweep view displays information in all directions for up to one mile. All map areas are clearly marked with “red, yellow or green” indicators showing how safe they are. - The Crime Map Overlay – Using the fully interactive heat map, you can search for points of interest or a specific address for crime data. This allows you to check out gas stations, restaurants and rest stops before you go there. Or, you can drop a pin on the map to verify that your next stop won’t be in an unexpected high crime area. - Customizable – You can customize the crime data displayed to suit your needs. Simply change the settings to display different types of crime by categories and weighting. For example, you can customize your settings to display personal or property crime – or set the app to show “auto thefts” or other specific types of crimes in your area. - Crime Notification – It’s easy to set up notifications so that you are alerted when you enter a high crime area. Notifications require background GPS use. - Reliable and Accurate Data – Crime and Place focuses on presenting well established, long term national and local crime trends in the U.S. This provides a more accurate picture of crime levels than other types of reporting. With Crime and Place, you won’t have to decipher confusing “incidence” maps that show dots or confusing icons that can be hard to read. Crime and Place is Great for: - Taking local trips - Going to new venues - Checking out the safety of your daily commute, your own neighborhood or other areas you frequent - Knowing how safe your local parks and attractions really are – before you go! - Taking Road Trips - Determining how safe the area is around your work, shopping and parking areas National Press Coverage The Wall Street Journal reported, “Navigating the app feels like running through a videogame: A warning pops up when you’re entering a ‘high crime area’ then directs you back to safe environs.” The Herald Sun wrote, ”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.” Download Crime and Place Today!

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.

scammy and scuzy

this app should on the crime list

Free app, not free information

After downloading the free app it notified me it is using sample data from 5 years ago. However, for a monthly fee it could access current data. Not good

Doesn’t work

I got this today, signed up, they sent me the code, I put the code then all I get is error messages and pop ups. Disappointed. Wouldn’t recommend. If you can’t even signup, how is it suppose to “help” or “save” your life.

Purchased it when there was no subscription. Now they want me to pay a subscription to keep using it. It’s just not the sort of service that the average person would use often enough to warrant paying a subscription.

Get the Citizen App

This is a pay app that does not have half of the services & features of its free competitors. Not as user friendly either.
By CbusFarmer

This won’t go well for you

This developer has raised the subscription fee for the app by 1000%. Yes that’s right, 1000%. ONE........THOUSAND..........PERCENT......... Was $5 annually, now it’s $50. That wasn’t the deal when I paid $10 for just the app alone. There are other ways to get this data, and the accuracy of the data in the app is questionable to begin with. To be fair the developer is very good about addressing any concerns within the app and the product is very well laid out, but even still it feels like I have been stolen from by this guy which is ironic for a crime app.

Doesnt work

I typed that in the zipcode if my town (11951) and it said the crime was zero. I onow for a fact that crime isn’t zero since 20 cars got stolen in the past 2 months

Nothing show up in Bay Area

Not seeing any data with map or any other option. No usable data making me think it is t supported here.
