We always see in Hollywood movies that destruction happens from Aliens. But, when is the last time we have seen an Alien cause destruction on earth? Never. But, we see our neighbor, relative, friend or a fellow citizen causing mass destruction only to realize our relation to that person after the destruction. What if we are more vigilant about our surroundings, our neighbors, our friends and our fellow citizens? We can stop some, if not all of the destruction we are seeing today.
Well, why we have police, FBI and other law enforcement infrastructure?
The rate of sworn officers was 2.4 per 1,000 inhabitants in the nation in 2011. The rate of full-time law enforcement employees (civilian and sworn) per 1,000 inhabitants was 3.4.
How can we expect 2-3 police officers to guard thousand citizens? What if all 1000 citizens are part of law enforcement? Only part-time? We can certainly curtain this menace of mass destruction.
Public 911 is a community initiative to involve everyone of us in being vigilant and proactively respond to unforeseen circumstances. This is not an alternative to 911 but this technology platform can be used by various organizations to provide handy tool for everyone to report of any incidents. If you see something, know something then please say something.
This is our effort to bring awareness and encourage participation of ordinary citizens in helping law enforcement to safeguard our hard earned freedom. We are trying to use latest technology and tools to help individuals, victims and law enforcement. Please give your ideas to enhance this effort. Together we can win!
