PNP Launches Crime Reporting Mobile App

PNP Chief, Police Director General Ronald M Dela Rosa; Smart VP for Public Affairs Mon Isberto; and Globe Telecom General Counsel, Atty Vicente Froilan Castelo, signed the joint accord during symbolic ceremonies in Camp Crame.

The Itaga Mo Sa Bato App (PNP Reporting App)/ Police Quick Response System are intended to supplement the national Emergency Hotline 911.

These systems are mobile apps that will be installed in smart phones of residents in a community.

The Itaga Mo Sa Bato App is a mobile android app that has accessible buttons. The first button allows the users to send text reports via SMS or the Internet. The second button allows them to auto call Emergency Hotline 911.

For emergency situations where the victims don’t have the opportunity to make a call to Emergency Hotline 911, a press of a button of the Police Alert App will alert the server at the PNP Command Center indicating the nature of emergency, name and address of establishment, contact number of reporter, contact number of nearest police/fire station, and other vital information. This information will allow the command center to quickly coordinate with the concerned authorities for the needed assistance.

As a counter-measure to check hoax and malicious reports, these apps are integrated with a registration module where responsible citizens will be registered. Reports from 2 registered numbers will be identified by the system and be given greater priority over reports from unregistered numbers that need to be validated. A compliance monitoring module is available to monitor the compliance of the concerned offices in relation to the reports forwarded to them. (PNP-PIO)
